The 4.7cm Panzerjäger R35 (f)
Some 800 R35s fell into German hands at the fall of France. Ever pragmatic, a number of them were sent to be converted by the German manufacturer Alkett.
By October 1941, over 170 had been converted into the 4.7 cm PaK(t) auf Panzerkampfwagen 35R(f) ohne Turm, a 47 mm tank destroyer to replace the Panzerjäger I.
A few headed to Russia to take part in Operation Barbarossa. However, most were sent to occupied territories such as the Channel Islands, the Netherlands and France.
The Panzerkampfwagen 35R(f) equipped Schnelle Brigade 30 (and possibly the 346 Inf. Div), who would face the Allied armies in the battles for Normandy.
Later, the Allies would meet them again at Arnhem, where they equipped Pz.Jg.Abt.684 (commanded by Hauptmann Pulkowski) and possibly the 59th Inf. Div.
