The S-tank takes care of that problem by having it's auxiliary driver face to the rear.  It allows it to drive as fast in reverse as forward.  This makes retreats much easier.

Thinking of the gun from the Sheridan or M60A2. Minus the missile of course. That round might work well for infantry support.

Include the missile so your StuG can have a long-range anti-tank capability in addition to the usual role of BSU.  :)

BSU = Blowing Shit Up

Maybe do this in the form of a Kanonenjagdpanzer with the M81/MGM-51 instead of the 90mm gun.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Although, a 90mm gun with modern ammunition could be quite convincing on the battlefield. Maybe with a Bradley style TOW launcher. 
Maybe with more internal room than the M551 to be able to carry more rounds.

Maybe.  I'm not sure of the internal layout/space etc for the Kanonenjagdpanzer so can't say.
