Final assembly of StuG assault guns.
In the case where foreign equipment was officially issued to the Wehrmacht, and recorded by the OKH, the figures are shown in square brackets […]. The production facilities of Czechoslovakia, Austria and Italy were all assimilated into the German war program, and output of foreign designed vehicles at these factories is treated in the same way as new production of German vehicles.

During the course of the war, the Germans converted obsolete vehicles for different purposes to prolong their active life. Such rebuilds and conversions are indicated within parentheses (…).
