The Marder III was a series of  German tank destroyers built on the chassis of the Czech designed Panzer 38(t). Produced from 1942 to 1944, they served on all fronts until the end of the war.

Even in the early stages of Operation Barbarossa, the Wehrmacht was aware of the need to field a more mobile and more potent anti-tank weapon. This need was further highlighted when, in June 1941, Geran anti-tank shells failed to penetrate the armour of new Soviet tanks such as the T-34 and KV-1.

The Marder III was armed with the 75 mm PaK 40 anti-tank gun. This was the final variant of the Marder series and was a significant improvement over previous models, with its lower silhouette, sloped armour and much more functional fighting compartment. This superb resin and metal vehicle comes with two crewmen.

All the rules for the Marder III Ausf. M tank destroyer can be found in the first supplement for Bolt Action, Armies of Germany. It covers the forces of the Third Reich be they in Italy, France, Russia, Africa or the last days of Berlin.
