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.
