Marder 38T

Two Marder 38T, together with a lot of destroyed equipment and debris, next to the church of Roncey. These two Marder 38T were either abandoned or destroyed, when the rear guard of the retreating German forces in Normandy were attacked by Allied fighter-bombers.

Some of the debris, including a Marder 38T and a Kübelwagen, after a German column was destroyed on 1944-05-19 (either by French artillery or USAAF fighter-bombers). The photograph is taken near Esperia, Frosinone, Italy. There exist a colour photograph of this Marder 38T, showing the darkest of the three-colour camouflage to be Rotbraun RAL 8017, and the markings being white.

Same Marder 38T as above, only seen from the rear. The pine branches, which appear to have been removed on the photograph above, would seem to indicate that the vehicles were originally camouflaged with foilage.
