The Marder I was a German anti-tank gun, adapted & created on the base of the FMC 36 French light tank captured in France in 1940. Designed by German artilleryman & military engineer Becker in 1942 after becoming head of a special unit for the conversion of captured vehicles (Baukommando Becker).
The task of the unit was to install field guns & other weapons on military equipment captured from the enemy. The total number of these self-propelled guns in unknown but at least ten of these tank destroyers were produced. They were in service with the mobile brigade 'West' & then the 21st Panzer Division of the Wehmacht. They were used as part of mixed artillery batteries, which in addition to anti-tank installations, also included self-propelled 105mm howitzers.
