Other versions


PzKpfw. 38T Ausf. H / M

Panzerjager 38(t) series H and M:
The changing situation on the battle fronts in late 1941 necessitated the next conversion and gave a new lease on life to the outdated PzKpfw 38(t) tanks. The 3.7cm guns were proven to be totally inadequate against the Russian T-34 and KV-1 tanks, but Germany at this time had only one tank capable of carrying the long 7.5cm gun, the PzKpfw IV. To provide the anti-tank gun on a mobile platform, the chassis of the PzKpfw 38(t) was mated, initially, with the excellent Russian 7.62cm guns which the Germans had captured in large numbers during the Summer 1941 offensives and later with the German 7.5cm Pak 40. The total production from the series H and M were about 2000 vehicles.


PzKpfw 38(t) SdKfz.139 with 7.62cm PaK36(R), Marder III,

The earliest Marder III variant was the SdKfz. 139, which was a simple conversion. The turret and the superstructure top plate were removed and the gun mounted on a cross, the members of which were welded to the hull sides and to the front and rear plates. A crudely constructed gun shield from 10mm plate provided only a rudimentary protection for the crew. The gun had a straight sight and 30 rounds were carried in bins within the old fighting compartment. The gun was rechambered for German ammunition which gave it a muzzle velocity of 960m/sec. It fired a 4.15kg shell which could penetrate 94mm armour at 1000m.
Between April and October 1942, 344 SdKfz 139s were built, 176 mounted on the Ausf. G chassis, the rest mounted on Ausf. H with a more powerful engine.

PzKpfw 38(t) with 75mm Stu

One or two prototypes are built in May 1942 to test variants of mounting 75mm and 76mm guns on the Praga Pzkw. 38(t) chassis. It lost out to the more popular and better designed Marder III with the 7.5 cm Pak 40 mounting. But apparently like all good German prototypes it saw service in Russia. Only three photos of this vehicle and no plans are known to exist.

PzKpfw 38(t) with 75mm Stu - was the prototype for the SdKfz 138. The 75mm StuK 40(L/45) were fitted with the new PAK 40/3


PzKpfw 38(t) SdKfz. 138 with 75mm PaK40, Marder III, ausf. H

This was a similar adaption for the Pak 40, which had become available in May 1942. The first 42 vehicles were manufactured on Ausf. H chassis in November 1942. The conversion was very similar to SdKfz 139, though the gun shield was of a better design and provided more protection for the crew. The usual crew of four was carried. 242 vehicles of this type were manufactured between November 1942 and April 1943 and a further 175 were converted from PzKpfw 38(t) during 1943

PzKpfw 38(t) SdKfz. 138M with 7.5cm PaK40/3, Marder III, ausf. M

THis was the final version of this series. The Ausf.M chassis was originally developed as a special self-propelled carriage for the infantry houwitzer by mounting the engine in the centre. The front part of the chassis was redesigned and lengthened with one straight sloping plate. The driver sat in the right front side under a cast armoured hood with hinged visor. The gun was mounted in the rear at pannier height and was protected by a four-sided superstructure. Armour on the gun shield was 10mm, on the hull only 15mm. Between April 1943 and May 1944, a total of 975 vehicles of this type were built.

PzKpfw 38(t) SdKfz. 138/1 with 15cm Sig 33, ausf. H, 'Grille or Bison'

To provide fully tracked supporting artillery for infantry formations, Alkett designed a conversion based on the PzKpfw.38(t) Ausf. H chassis, using a Rheinmetall-Borsig howitzer. The gun was again located on a cross-member, bolted to the sides and front and rear plates. 90 vehicles were built on the Ausf. H chassis until the Ausf. M chassis, developed specially for this purpose, became available.

PzKpfw 38(t) SdKfz. 138/1 with 15cm Sig 33, ausf. M, 'Grille or Bison'

The original order for 200 Grille was completed with 90 based on the old Ausf. H chassis and 110 as originally planned on the designated new Ausf. M chassis. From April 1943 until September 1944 a total of 282 of these 'Grille' self-propelled guns were built.

PzKpfw 38(t) Flakpanzer 38 with 20mm Flak 38, ausf. L, SdKfz. 140

Between November 1943 and February 1944 BMM manufactured 140 anti-aircraft tanks on the Ausf. L chassis. The 20mm Flak 38(L/55) was mounted in the rear of the vehicle and was enclosed in an armored super structure, of which the upper half could be opened to facilitate the work of the crew and to allow more depression of the gun.

PzKpfw 38(t) Aufklarungspanzer 38 with 20mm gun in turret, SdKfz. 140/1

After the PzKpfw II 'Luchs' was abondoned as being too complicated and too costly, the pressing need for a fully tracked reconnaissance vehicle was filled by modifying the PzKpfw 38(t) chassis which were recalled specifically for this purpose. During February and March 1944, 70 vehicles had their original turrets removed and their chassis prepared. 50 were fitted with the 20mm Hanglafette open topped turred.

38T Munition instandsetzungpanzer [= armored ammunition supply vehicle] -

PzKpfw 38(t) Munitionpanzer, ausf. K (Grille without gun)

Parallel with the production of the 'Grille', from January to May 1944, a total of 102 Munitionspanzer were built on the Ausf. M chassis. The limited ammunition storage capacity of the 'Grille' was to be supported by operating two unarmed Munitionspanzer with every six SIG33 gun systems.

PzKpfw 38(t) Munitionpanzer / instandsetzungpanzer 38(t)

Starting in 1942 many obsolete tank chassis were converted in the field to auxilairy vehicles to support self-propelled gun and tank formations. With the turret removed they weighed only 8-tons and had a crew of two. Between January and May 1944 some 102 new vehicles, based on the Ausf. K chassis were built specifically to re-supply the "Grill".

Hetzer and their variants

Hetzer 38(t) with 7.5cm Pak 39 L/48 gun 'Early'

The "Hetzer" was based on an enlarged version of the well proven 38(t) chassis. Spension and running gear were extended by about 10 per cent to carry the increased size, but the gearbox, steering and the final drive units were unchanged. The driver's position was switched to the left and the armour was completely redesigned. The entire contruction was welded. The gun was a modified version of the PzKpfw IV gun and was mounted at the right side of the fighting compartment. Armor thickness was 60mm at the front, but only 20mm on sides and rear. Until March 1945 a total of 2584 "Hetzers" were built.

Hetzer 38(t) 638/14 "Starr" - with 75mm Pak 39 (L/48) or 105mm StuH 42/2 L28

Originally, the Hetzer was designed to carry a rigid mounted gun. Rheinmetall-Borsig was developing the gun and Alkett was put in charge with the vehicle modification studies. Two guns were envisioned for this project, namely the 75mm Pak 39 (L/48) and the 105mm StuH 42/2 (L/28). Two prototypes on the 38(T) chassis were actually built and tested at Hillersleben. Problems with the sights and unmanageable hand wheels led to postponement of production of the Starr and the Hetzer with the normal gun mount was produced instead. 60 vehicles were built and sent to Skoda in Prague for completion in April 1945, but were never finished.

Hetzer 38(t) Flammpanzer [= flame thrower]

In december 1944, 20 Hetzers were converted to flame-throwing tanks by having their guns removed and replaced with a flame-thrower. A simulated barrel was fitted on the flame-thrower, so that the vehicle would not be so esaly recognizable. Weight was 15.5 tons and a crew of four was carried. Fuel for the flame-thrower was carried internally. This conversion was made specifically for the Ardennes Offensive.

Hetzer 38(t) with 15cm Sig 33/2 - (Gerat 588)

The troops continually demanded more self-propelled 150mm SIG33 guns but since production of the SdKfz 138/1 Ausf. M had terminated in 1944, it was impossible to meet these demands. However, in November 1944 it was decided to produce a new self-propelled howitzer on the Hetzer chassis. A total of 30 of these vehicles was built between December 1944 and February 1945, 24 from new production and 6 rebuilt from Hetzer. The howitzer was mounted in a heightened superstructure, which otherwise followed the clean Hetzer lines.

PzKpfw 38(t) Bergepanzer I Hetzer, with or without earthspade

Concurrently with the production of the Hetzer, a recovery vehicle [in German: Bergepanzer] was built. A total of 170 vehicles was built of which 106 were a new production line while 64 werew converted from normal Hetzer. With a weight of 14.5 ton and a crew of four, it had a lowered super structure, no gun and it was fitted with a winch. It was used by the Hetzer units as a standard recovery vehicle. Because of an under-powered engine, the vehicle proved far from succesful.

The last variants of the 38T and / or Hetzer variants in WWII period

A small historical reference to the prototype model - (source http://www.dishmodels.ru/gshow.htm?p=8103)

- In October 1944, the company BMM has received an order to develop a series of reconnaissance tanks weighing up to 15 tons on the chassis Jagdpenzer 38 with a three-man crew. When used in the manufacture of prototypes main chassis Bergepanzer 38. developers suggested four main types of weapons for various versions of the machine:

- 1. Gerat 563 - hanglaffete with 20mm anti-aircraft flak 38 and MG42, based on Bergehetzer chassis
- 2. Gerat 585 - with 20 mm Flak 38, based on Bergehetzer chassis
- 3. Gerat 586 - 120mm mortar, based on 38T chassis
- 4. Gerat 654 - with 75 mm K51 / L24 in an open top

According to some few articles came out of the stage of projects on paper. Prototypes are made ​​but not tested
Although it is also known that one of them - the machine (Gerat 654) nevertheless successfully tested in the fall and winter of 1945 on kummersdorf. But it is not accepted for production.

PzKpfw 38(t) Aufklarungspanzer 38 with 75mm gun/short in turret, SdKfz. 140/1

With most German tank chassis running out by 1945, only the 38(D) and 38(T) were left in the light class category. The existing 38T / Hetzer was continued, in various forms, and became the basis for a new reconnaissance vehicle. One version, completed as a prototype, carried the short 75mm K51 gun in a sloped, open top superstructure while only two prototypes of the Aufklaringspanzer [= armored reconnaissance vehicle] armed with the 75mm KwK 38L/24 were built.

38T / Hetzer - APC "Kaetzchen" - (Built on Hetzer chassis)

In 1944, a single prototype for a new full track reconnaissance vehicle was ordered from and built by CKD / BMM in Prague, manufacturer of the Hetzer 38(T) Panzerjager. It was wider than the Auto Union model and heavier, being much better armored. Its front plate armor was 50mm, sides were 30mm and rear was 20mm thick. It retained the general layout with the open top and the engine in the rear, but it lacked the ball fixing for the front MG, wich was instead mounted behind an armored shield as carried by the SdKfz.250 and 251 halftracks. A rear mount for another MG was also provided.


Information taken from http://www.materielsterrestres39-45.fr

In 1943, the Auto-Union firm received the command of a fully tracked reconnaissance vehicle for the eastern front. The vehicle was transporting 6 - 8 soldiers and was not to engage enemy vehicles. Beginning 1944, Auto-Union produced the complete model and two prototypes. The fighting compartment had no roof. The crew consisted of the pilot (left) and gunner (right). The same function as the transportation of staff Sd.Kfz.251 half-track he had more the same internal layout. The vehicle was powered by a Maybach 50Z 180-200 hp. The shield was thick 14.5mm on the sides and rear and 30mm at the front.
The frame included some novelties such as steel-lined wheels. Both prototypes were tested at Berka was in 1944 when they discovered many mechanical problems. In September 1944, Auto-Union received the order to stop the development work that was entrusted to BMM based on the chassis of Jagdpanzer 38 (t) Hetzer.

A two prototypes Auto-Union (designated as gepanzerter Mannschaftransportwagen kätzchen (kitten) will be captured by the US Army in early 1945. Two prototypes based on PzKpfw 38 (t) nA (neuer Art) were also ordered. The draft BMM very similar to Auto-Union, however, included some amendments (two MG 34, an engine installed right rather than the left and a frontal armor increased to 50mm, ...). Two engines were considered and reviewed, the Tatra 103 to 220 hp and 280 hp Praga NR. e design of BMM was higher than Auto-Union with such a maximum road speed of 64km / h, and in any field of 40km / h for maximum autonomy of 600 km. The version of BMM was designated as Vollkettenaufklarer 38 (t) kätzchen (kitten) but never went into production before the end of the war.

One of the developments in the last year of the war was the Waffentrager [= weapons platform] series. A large variety of vehicles was designed. Just about every plant capable of building a tractor, made a test vehicle but only a small number was actually built in quantity production. Some Ardelt Waffentrager were used in action and a surviving example can be found in the Kubinka tank museum.

On "38T / Hetzer chassis" based variants in Czechoslovak military service "PM-1" - (post war)

This is a post-war prototype of the Czechoslovak flame-throwing tank PM-1 which is based on the Hetzer chassis.
The hole in front armour was covered with a piece of an armour sheet, turret from LT-38 (Pz.38(t)) with the main gun removed and replaced with a flame thrower and a machine gun from T-34. Huge box at the rear carried seven bottles with pressurized air to drive the inflammable fluid. Diorama portrays the PM-1 during tests in summer 1954 - filling of the internal tanks with incendiary fluid.
