Marder IIIH Sd.Kfz.138

Postby snakerensky » Sun 9 May 2021 13:48

The model for the Marder III in game is actually the Marder IIIH Sd.Kfz.138 which as its main gun had a 7.5 cm PaK 40, the same as the Marder II and Marder IIIM.

For some reason the Marder III in game has the 76.2 mm PaK 36(r) which is correct for the Marder III Sd.Kfz.139 (picture in the link below), but wrong for the Marder III model in game.

The Encyclopedia of German Tanks of World War Two by Chamberlain and Doyle backs this up, considering the belief that this is the go to text for the subject I would not argue with them.

Is it possible to replace the gun in the current Marder III to the correct 75mm Pak 40 version and add the H to the name, or change the model to the Marder III Sd.Kfz.139, at least then either version would be historically correct.
