The Hummel is a German tier 6 self-propelled gun.

Produced from 1943 through 1944, with a total of more than 650 vehicles manufactured. They first saw combat in the Battle of Kursk (Operation Citadel).

Built on the Pz.Kpfw. III/IV chassis, the Hummel is a very well-rounded piece of artillery. The second gun can take down or seriously damage any heavy tank. This, combined with a good accuracy, makes it one of the best T6 SPGs. It can also be played in "tank destroyer mode" (direct fire) when needed. However, because of its height and low gun depression, going into a short range gunfight is not advisable, since you're likely to just overshoot anything in front of you.

The Hummel leads to the G.W. Panther.

Historical Info

Based on the experiences gained in the early stages of fighting on the Eastern Front,in late 1941, plans were laid for the development of artillery support vehicles, including a howitzer carrier based on Panzerkampfwagen III’s chassis. Its main role was to provide other units with mobile artillery support on the battlefield.

In early 1942, one prototype based on the Panzerkampfwagen III’s chassis and armed with 105mm leFH17 howitzer (with muzzle brake) was constructed. Its design was rejected in favor of using the Panzerkampfwagen IV’s chassis. This design was accepted, and one prototype, based on the Panzerkampfwagen IV’s chassis and armed with 105mm leFH17, was produced.

In late July of 1942, it was decided to replace the gun with the more powerful 150mm sFH 18 L/30 howitzer (without muzzle brake) based on the special chassis by Alkett/Rheinmetall-Borsig designated Geschutzwagen III/IV. It combined components of both the Pz.Kpfw. III (mainly Ausf J - driving and steering mechanism) and Pz.Kpfw. IV (mainly Ausf F - suspension, engine, cooling system). Originally, the Hummel (Bumble-Bee) was planned to be another "interim solution" until a specially designed gun platform / chassis was developed.
