Default 78. Sturm Division

Hi all

I have to make the profile of a StuG III at Kursk. The problem is that it have to be a vehicle of the 78. Sturm Division, and I can't find any picture or other drawing.

So I need any picture of a StuG III of the 78. Sturm Division at Kursk.

Any help will be precious.

Thank you.

The 189th division of assault guns as a part of the 78th assault infantry division was involved in the Kursk fight

Thank you ; indeed the StuG Abteilung 189 was attached to the division and fought at Kursk. But I didn't find any picture of these StuG III in 1943.

Tthere is the only photo that could find across Kursk and 78 divisions in the Russian segment of the Internet. Also I can't tell with confidence that it is Stug from 189 Abteilung

Thank you Stive ; I keep it in my files. That's kind from your part.

I've found one in a book I've just received. There are really some units that are not very well known. Historians have still a lot of work...

As it isn't strange, on the Kursk fight in general not so many photos can be seen. Except propaganda photos with Tigers and Ferdinands, other armored machinery comes across a photo a little
