On a side note: It seem that the Marder TD is back in action! With style.

The armor is impressive for a light tank. Wonder how fast it goes.

love the new armor, argentine tank based on the marder with the 105mm cannon runs at 75km/h, with marder armor same engine, it could have a similar speed

Description

The Marder light tank was developed by Rheinmetall of Germany. It was first revealed in 2012. This new light tank is based on refurbished and upgraded Marder infantry fighting vehicle. This ageing IFV is being replaced in the German Army service with the new Puma. Rheinmetall proposes overhauled and upgraded Marders for new customers.

The Marder light tank is fitted with a fully-stabilized 105-mm high-velocity rifled gun, developed by OTO Melara of Italy. Turret resembles that of the Italian Centauro tank destroyer. The gun is loaded manually. It has an effective range of 3 000 m and is compatible with standard NATO 105-mm ammunition. The new light tank can be used to engage main battle tanks from the ambush as well as other armored vehicles.

Vehicle is fitted with new add-on side armor for improved protection. All-round protection is against 14.5-mm armor-piercing projectiles. This new light tank withstands an 8 kg anti-tank mine blast. It is also fitted with NBC protection system.

This light tank is operated by a crew of four, including commander, gunner, loader and driver.

The Marder light tank is powered by an MTU MB883 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 600 hp.
