Munitionspanzer auf Fahrgestell Panzer III

History:  From May 1943, some old Panzer III returned for rebuilding, were converted to Bef Wg and Beob Wg.  The remainder were converted to Munitionspanzer between May 1943 and May 1944.  After that date, Panzer III were converted to Bergepanzer III, for use with tank detachments.  Turrets form converted tanks were issued for use in fixed emplacements.  In May 1944, 110 turrets armed with 5cm KwK L/42 and L/60 were available for such use.
