Bolt Action: Marder III H (Plastic Boxset)
Product code: AC8726
Marrying the obsolete but reliable chassis of the Czech-built Pz 38(t)
tank and the captured Soviet 76.2mm PaK 36(r) L/51 anti-tank gun, the
Marder (Marten) provided the Wehrmacht with a potent self-propelled gun.
These captured Soviet weapons were rechambered to accept German 75mm PaK
40 ammunition and avoid supply issues. As the war progressed, the main
guns were replaced with the PaK 40 anti-tank guns.
This box set contains:
A 1/56th scale hard plastic Marder III tank destroyer
Bolt Action stat cards
Full-colour waterslide decal sheet
Vehicle damage markers
An instruction leaflet
Deployed on both the Western and Eastern fronts, the Marder III also saw
action in North Africa where it was one of the few German options to
counter the heavily armoured British Matilda infantry tanks.
In all, 1,581 Marder III tank destroyers were produced and would
continue to be employed to the war’s end in 1945.
Models supplied unassembled and unpainted
