The German self-propelled 15 cm sIG 33B Selbstfahrlafette was commonly known as a Sturmpanzer II Bison. During the French campaign the self-propelled guns on the PzKpfw I chassis were very effective. However, the model was too high and the chassis overload was noticeable. The response to the detected defects was a new self-propelled gun built on the modified chassis of the PzKpfw II tank. The hull of the prototype with 60 cm, width 32 cm, the engine was installed across, one running wheel was added and a heavy 15 cm sIG 33 150 mm cannon was mounted. Despite numerous modifications, the self-propelled cannon did not meet expectations. It was still too tight for the crew and the engine overheated. Modifications of the chassis made it impossible to build new self-propelled guns on the basis of PzKpfw II tanks withdrawn from the main warfare. Only 12 units were produced in a trial series.
These guns were then incorporated into two independent companies of motorized infantry guns 707 and 708 included in the Afrika Korps. In Africa they took part in the warfare from February to December 1942. The British probably acquired 6 copies, some of which were used by Egypt during the First Israeli-Arab War.
