Response to Soldiers' colloquial terms for rare AFV?

As they were gunners, I would guess that they simply called it "gun", i.e. Geschütz. I doubt they would've had any need to refer to it by caliber, make of chassis or the full "Geschützwagen". Alternatively, the probably called it "vehicle", i.e. Fahrzeug.

Reports from operators of Sturmgeschütze and Jagdpanzer seems to have used those names, at least when making their after-action reports.
