Marder III M
Panzerjäeger 38(t) für 7.5cm PaK40/3, Ausf M, SdKfz 138, Marder III
The first Marder III was the Marder III using the captured Russian Model 36 76.2 mm L/54.8 gun. As soon as the 7.5cm PaK 40 became available, this model was phased out of production. The Marder III Ausf H armed with the PaK 40 gun replaced it. Like its predecessor the Marder III H’s engine was positioned at the back of the vehicle, so the fighting compartment was positioned centrally. In 1942 all Panzer 38(t) production was switched to self-propelled guns. This allowed the hull layout design to be modified eliminating many of the elements required for tanks.
Mortar Company (Late War)
The Soviet 82-BM-41 mortars were tasked to assist the infantry with immediate artillery support. They were smoothbore, muzzle-loaded weapons and had fixed firing pins for drop firing. They were light so they could be manpacked in order to keep up with the infantry. The Soviets went through a quick succession of mortar designs before settling on the distinctive 82-BM-41 design. It was designed to take advantage of mass production methods. It was generally simplified. Its round base plate was stamped out and the bipod could have wheels added to speed the mortars movement, to offset the Soviets lack of transport and making the Mortar easy to transport on foot by its crew without disassembling it.
