HobbyBoss 1:35 - Marder III Sd.Kfz.138 Ausf.M Early


3 items left

The German tank destroyer Marder III was deployed from 1942 until 1945 on all fronts of the Second World War. The Marder used the chassis and the roofless fighting compartment of the Panzer 38(t). Its main armament was either the Soviet 76-mm divisional field gun M1936 or the German 75-mm Pak 40 anti-tank gun.

The Sd.Kfz.138 Ausf.M was the latest variant of the series armed with the 75mm Pak 40. Unlike the previous models, this variant featured sloped armour and an improved fighting compartment which was closed in the rear for better protection of the crew. The rear-mounted engine of the vehicle was replaced with an engine installed between the driver and the crew. This gave the crew more room in the fighting compartment decreasing their exposure to enemy fire. However, the compartment remained open-topped.

The crew of the Marder III Ausf.M included a commander, a gunner, a loader and a driver. About 1,000 units of the Ausf.M were built between 1943 and 1944.
