You may have noticed by now that I love German tank destroyers. In most of my Bolt Action games, I like to bring at least one. A TD generally has a more powerful gun for its points, giving you more bang for your buck. I do not own every German tank destroyer on the market…..but I am working on it.
After the Panzer 38(T) was made obsolete, the Panzer 38(T)’s chassis was converted into a tank destroyer using the Soviet 76.2mm field gun. The Soviet guns had been captured by the Germans in large quantities.
The 76.2mm gun was rechambered to use the standard German 75 mm ammunition. 30 rounds was carried inside the vehicle. A 7.92 mm machine gun mounted in the hull.
Marder III was produced from April 1942 to May 1944. Three models were produced, with a total of 1561 vehicles manufactured.
The Marder III was very vulnerable in combat due to its high silhouette, thin armour and an open top. Its survivability was low.
This models is from Warlord Games.
