The French 39(H) tank is also known as the Marder I, along with several other French chassis' converted to an artillery role. In 1942, 24 39(H) Hotchkiss tanks were converted to self-propelled artillery by the removal of the turret and redesign of the superstructure into an open-topped fighting compartment housing a 75mm howitzer. An MG34 was usually carried by the crew for use against attacking infantry units. The 7.5cm PaK 40(Sf) saw action with the 8th Panzer artillery in France in 1944.
