I would like to suggest adding a modification to the Stug III Ausf. A to have a GP/AA Mg 34 over the commanders or loader hatch with a little mount, with open (or closed) hatch and ghost controlled from within (like many AA Mgs allready are. They where usually given a self defence MG 34, however without a mount, these were usually a Field mod and as such fired from the bipod normally. With only the Ausf.G reciving a propper MG shield with 2 mounting points for protected anti infantry or GP/AA.
These mountings were usually more limited to the frontal ark, however still with a wider arc of fireing angle.

In game the StuG III Ausf. A does have no means to fight against other unarmored vehicles beyond the limited gun angles as well as against air targets.

Here the crew simply put the Mg 34 as HMG on its Tripod on the back.(Click to show)


I would love to see it on multiple StuGs, especially the ones with the MG shield on top (like the StuH-42 and StuG.III G).

funny that they modeled the shield but never put the MG there
