It deploys SdKfz 234 Armoured Car, StuG IVs, Officers and Nebelwerfers. The escalation to Assault Phase happens in nearly every game. It's a required upgrade to research LMG42s for Grenadiers, the Flammenwerfer upgrade for the Haltrack and the Smoke grenade usage for the 8.1cm mortar crew. Due to the great synergy with Blitzkrieg, Tier 3 is heavily used with Stormtroopers. Stormtroopers provide the AT (Anti-Tank) and improved anti-infantry capabilities like Grenadiers, but also camo, can use bundled grenades (unlocked at Assault Phase) and with Battle Phase, can obtain MP44s, which can decimate infantry in a close-up battle. The StuG IV is used as a portable Pak 38 and the Nebelwerfers can decimate infantry 'blobs' with their long range and incendiary capabilities. This makes the Sturm Armoury a favorite for Blitzkrieg doctrine players, who do not really need to use Tier 2 as Storm troopers replace Grenadiers, StuGs replace Paks and StuHs replace Mortars.
