The Marder III SdKfz 138, a panzer 38(t) with German 75mm PAK 40/3, only saw action in Tunesia, probably since late (December) 1942 or early 1943. There were only a few of them in Africa.

The Marder III SdKfz 139, a panzer 38(t) with Russian 76,2mm PAK36(r) (This gun was modified to use German 75mm ammo), was first produced in April of 1942 and some 60 of them saw action throughout the African front. (Perhaps in time for the battle of Gazala, but perhaps not. I don't know really...)

The Marder III (with 7.62cm PaK 36(r)) was used in Africa, a number were shipped over in May '42 and were issued to the 15th Panzer Division. Also the Marder II (pic 5) and Marder III Ausf.H (pictures 2, 3, 4 and 6) were also used in Africa abeit in small numbers (the Marder IIIH was only used in Tunisia IIRC). The Marder II Ausf.D (pic 1) was only used on the Eastern Front.

I'd rather see a Hetzer first if anybody was going to work on the Czech chassis
