More info:

text The SdKfz 135 Marder I was a German tank destroyer that served in World War II. It was armed with a powerful 75 mm Pak 40 anti-tank gun that could penetrate most Soviet tanks. The Marder I was based on the chassis of the French Tracteur Blindé 37L, a vehicle that the Germans captured in large numbers after the fall of France in 1940. The Marder I had a simple open-top superstructure that offered little protection to the crew, but allowed them to operate the gun more easily. The Marder I was produced from July to August 1942, with a total of 170 vehicles built. It was used mainly on the Eastern Front, where it proved to be an effective but vulnerable weapon against the Soviet armor.
