The Marder III is the name for a series of World War II German tank destroyers built on the chassis of the Panzer 38(t). The German word Marder means "marten" in English. They were in production from 1942 to 1944 and served on all fronts until the end of the war. The Marders were mechanically reliable, as with all vehicles based on the Czechoslovak 38t chassis.
