The Sturmtiger (English: Assault tiger) was a German assault gun designed by the Altmärkische Kettenfabrik (Alkett) in 1943-1944. Only 18 full-production models were built. It was a modified superstructure fitted with a 380mm naval rocket launcher built on Tiger I's chassis, designed for urban warfare, and as such was comprised of thick 150mm frontal armor and 82mm rear armor.
The Sturmtiger is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII, as a tank issued to the Wehrmacht and the German Elite Forces. Only one player can drive the vehicle and they control all of its weapons.
Its armament consists of an main cannon and a co-axial machine gun. It does not have a turret like other German tanks, therefore its cannon can only move around a few degrees on its own, otherwise the tank must rotate itself. Its cannon is extremely powerful, and is equal to the projectile of a destroyer or a defgun, similar to the T95.

— In-game description
The Sturmtiger is featured in Battlefield V, first appearing in the Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer. The vehicle can be called into battle by Squad Leaders as part of the Squad Reinforcement system. Compared to the Tiger I, the Sturmtiger is equipped with a highly destructive 380mm rocket launcher and has improved frontal protection, at the cost of limited gun traverse. It can also carry up to three other passengers, who may occupy left, right and top gunner positions.
