And that it cant use its Tow´s when angled and not standing on flat ground, the turret sides are poorly armord and .50 cal can pen it.
Its a huge target, the bonus is it has A FCS and stabs and laser range finders.
Laser accurate fire support and retarded optics plus the ability to support armor on open terrain. And the infantry squad it carries is armed to the teeth with ATGM and M249.
Marder has very close range ATGM, better profile/armor, and inferior everything else. (Except dismounts, but even then Javelin/Dragon adds another dimension to a rifle squad.)
