Historical information

The Marder II was a German tank destroyer of World War II based on the Panzer II chassis.

The Marder II came in two major versions. The first version Marder II (SdKfz 132) was based on the light Panzer II Ausf.D/E and Flammpanzer II chassis with Christie suspension. It was armed with captured Soviet 7.62 cm guns, re-chambered to accept German 7.5 cm Pak 40 ammunition, which improved its penetrative capabilities.

These early Marder IIs had a very high silhouette (2.60 m high), thin armor of only 30 mm (front) and 10 to 15 mm (sides). There was no armour on the top or rear, leaving the crew with very little protection. Alkett and Wegmann produced 201 Marder II (SdKfz 132) from early 1942 to early 1943.
