Response to Soldiers' colloquial terms for rare AFV?

In a statement for a War Crimes trial, Hauptmann Mölter, CO of 1./Pio.Bn. 716 located at Herouvillette mentions receiving on D-Day "ein Sturmgeschütz" which could only conceivably have belonged to StuG-Abt. 200. A POW of StuG-Abt 200 stated that the "l.F.H. 16 on Hotchkiss chassis...was wrongly classed as an assault gun (Stu G.). It should have been called an S.P. gun." (this latter quote was English-only so the exact words used by the POW are unknown). Kortenhaus in the German version of the History of 21.PD refers to them as "Sturmgeschütze".
