German Tank Destroyer Marder III M "Normandy Front", plastbyggsats.
Called to Normandy
The Marder III M was the last of three German tank destroyer variants based upon the captured Czechoslovak 38(t) tank, and sported a powerful 7.5cm gun in an open-top fighting compartment. As the Allies pushed on from their Normandy landings in June 1944, Marder III Ms were on the scene in a largely defensive struggle against enemy armor.
