In Panzerblitz, Stugs had a higher defence value and lower attack value than e.g. Pz IVs.  It work out as 2 DEF and 2 A per Stug (as the counter represented six vehicles ), whereas a Pz IV was 1.6 DEF and 2.8 A per tank. Panthers were 2.4 DEF and 3.2 A per tank.

The Russians were really poor as the counters represented companies, but the general model was similar, SU85s have higher DEF and lower A per vehicle (1.2 DEF and 1.4 A per SU85 vs 1.0 DEF and 1.5 A per T34/85).

It seemed to work OK in the game, so that may be an approach to consider. Tactically there wasn’t any difference in their operation in the game, but their limited traverse and lower profile is factored into the attack and defence factors respectively.
