I recently came across this photo and thought it would be of interest to some members of this forum. I've never seen one like this before.
The story goes that this Panzer III was captured by the Soviets some time in 1943 and they modified it by adding a 76mm gun to a new fixed superstructure. In early 1944, however, this vehicle was recaptured by the Germans. In fact, it became part of Pz.Jg.Abt.128 and participated in operations near Krivoi-Rog.
Anyway, hope this is of interest.
