StuG.Abt. 202's repair base in Sumy (Ukraine), summer of 1943. On the left, StuG III Ausf. F (late) and on the right, Sd.Kfz. 252.
Spoiler
StuG.Abt./Brig. 202 "knocked out at least 1,017 (confirmed) Soviet tanks and SPGs", making the unit the third most decorated German assault gun unit. Curiously, the StuG.Abt. 202 had more short barreled StuGs than the L/43-48 until March 1943.

What can you guys tell me about this wreck?

Saunas are a passive-aggressive way of killing Russians.

It is the T-34-76 numbered "450" that got blown up by a german Stug on the Ihantala-Kilpeenjoki road.

Like Mr. Flippy Warbear said, it's the most famous wreck of the Battle of Ihantala.
T-34-76 was destroyed close range by StuG III Ausf. G (Alkett, 11.43-03.44 prod.) from 3./StuG.Brig. 303, commanded by Unteroffizier Willy Obeldobel who received the Cross of Liberty - 1st Class for his swift action.
