Marder III Ausf. M

Marder III Ausf. M is a German tank destroyer based on the Geschützwagen 38(t) Ausf. M, a purpose-designed vehicle for self-propelled gun use, armed with the 75 mm PaK 40 anti-tank gun. Ausf. M was the final variant of the Marder series and a significant improvement over previous models, with its lower silhouette, sloped armor, and more functional fighting compartment. It was the variant that was produced in the largest numbers, with 942 vehicles built in two series from May 1943 to May 1944.
The various Marder IIIs fought on all European fronts and North Africa, with the Sd. Kfz. 139 being used mainly at the Eastern Front, though some also fought in Tunisia. Marder III was mechanically reliable and its firepower was sufficient to destroy the majority of Soviet tanks on the battlefield at combat range.
The weaknesses were mainly related to survivability. The combination of a high silhouette and open-top armor protection made Ausf. M vulnerable to indirect artillery fire. The armor was also quite thin, making the design highly vulnerable to enemy tanks and to close-range machine-gun fire. From 1944, the weak-armored Marder series were phased out of production in favor of the Jagdpanzer 38(t) but served until the end of the conflict.

SU-85

SU-85 is a Soviet self-propelled gun based on the chassis of the T-34 medium tank and meant to serve as tank destroyer. The gun is a modification of the earlier SU-122 self-propelled howitzer. The 122 mm M-30S howitzer got replaced with a D-5T high-velocity 85 mm anti-tank gun, and this is where the vehicle got the "85" designation. D-5T was capable of penetrating the Tiger I from 1000 m, and the vehicle had a low profile and excellent mobility.

SU-85 entered combat in August 1943 and saw active service across the Eastern Front until the end of the war. Though a capable weapon, it was found that its 85 mm weapon was not adequate to penetrate the armor of the larger German armored fighting vehicles. When the up-gunned T-34-85 medium tank entered mass production in the Spring of 1944, there was no point in continuing production of the tank destroyer without superior firepower. In light of this, SU-85 production was stopped in late 1944 and replaced with the the SU-100 tank destroyer, armed with the more powerful 100 mm D-10S gun.

Crusader I and Panzer III Ausf. J

Crusader I

Crusader I was one of the primary British cruiser tanks during the early part of the Second World War and made important contributions to the British victories during the North African Campaign. The Crusader I variant was fitted with a 2-pounder (57mm) main gun. The design was to prove vital during the Battle of El Alamein at Tobruk and in Tunisia. The Crusader tank didn’t see active service beyond Africa and would be replaced by M3 Grant and Sherman medium tanks.

Panzer III Ausf. J

Panzer III Ausf. J is the most common version of Panzer III which saw fighting in Russia and North Africa. It was equipped with a short-barreled 50mm gun. Ausf. J fared well in fighting against British Crusader cruiser and US-supplied M3 Stuart light tanks. However, it was less effective against heavy armored Matilda II tanks. The production stopped in 1942.
