Final assembly of StuG assault guns.

Tanks, Assault guns, Self-propelled guns production in Germany during WW2

In the following table is summarized the production of all types of armoured vehicles manufactured for the German Army.

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 Czecheslovakia, Austria and Italy were all assimilated into the German war programme, 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 so as to prolong their active life. Such rebuilds and conversions are indicated within parantheses (…).
