Marder III was
the name for a series of World War II German tank destroyers.
They mounted either Soviet 76.2mm F-22 Model 1936 divisional field guns,
or German 7.5 cm PaK 40, in an open-topped cupola on top of the chassis of
the Panzer 38(t). They offered little protection to the crew, but added
significant firepower compared to contemporary German tanks. They were in
production from 1942 to 1944 and served on all fronts until the end of the war,
along with the similar Marder II.
