Sd.kfz. 131 Panzerjäger Marder II
The classic - finally available again as a reissue!
In the initial phase of the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the Marder II was used against the superior Russian tanks T-34 and KV-2.
In 1941 it became clear that not only the Panzerkampfwagen III and IV, but also the 5cm Pak 38 were no longer powerful enough, and the 7.5cm Pak 40 was developed, which could penetrate 130mm thick armoured plates at a distance of 1000m with up to 14 rounds per minute.
The Marder II received the Pak 40 with an open fighting compartment on the chassis of the Panzerkampfwagen II.
Production started in the middle of 1942.
