Plus 7 operational and 1 in repair with "Ersatz- und Ausbildungs-Regiment Hermann Göring" in the Netherlands. These were later deployed against the British, but few of them broke down during the road march before reaching the battle.

Sounds like every German tank, ever

Yes true, but even the Marder I made it to WoT while the II is nowhere to be seen. I literally don't know one game that has it - not even FH2 iirc.

It is actually the Marder II that is in World of Tanks.
Although this is the Sd.Kfz. 131 version as opposed to the 132 version in nysä's picture.

I wouldn't be that harsh  :) These were training vehicles, with a considerable amount of wear and tear from being used almost weekly for more than two years. Actually, it was a Pz III Ausf M, 2 x Pz IV (w. 7.5 cm KwK 37), StuG III Ausf E and two Marder III (w. 7.62 cm Pak 36) that made it all way from Utrecht to Hechtel.

@Sander93: Ouch, you're right. It has been some time since I frequently played lowtiers. I think they do have a Marder I but they made it a French vehicle. I think they call it FCM PaK and it's premium - and has 400m viewrange, like Tier 10 vehicles, but on Tier 3 because balance :D

@nysä: Thanks for the additional information.

schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 653 platoon leader's Ferdinand (Fgst.Nr. 150080) returning to the combat trains after an operation. The vehicle commander is Leutnant Hermann Lock and the gunner is Unteroffizier Kurt Titus. This vehicle survived Kursk, with very minimal repairs needed.

Really? The grip looks very much like a Maschinenpistole grip.

This is what you're seeing- the grip for it if it was mounted in a plane.  These guys are just dicking around/training on it.

Might be Luftwaffe field division troops, later in the war.

Ah, clear now, thx. Looks a bit like an MP grip indeed ;)
