Panzer: Panzerjäger Marder II / Sd.Kfz.132
Not to be confused with the Marder II, Sdkfz 131.
This version of the Marder series was based on the Pzkpfw II, Ausf D1/ D2 chassis mounting the  PaK 36(r) L/51 gun, captured en masse from the Red Army in 1941.
 A stop-gap solution created for dealing with the Soviet T-34 and KV tanks, it served with various Panzerjäger units from April 1942 to early 1944.

Great quirky phunn at Dorris McComics

*****
Panzer: Munitionsschlepper IV für Karl-Gerät
At first glance I though this photo showed a Bergepanzer IV, a turret less Panzer IV with a crane fitted for salvaging disabled AFV's.
It is in fact one of several purpose built vehicles for supplying the massive shells used by the 600mm Karl-Gerät self-propelled siege mortar.

Nice late 1970s colour photos by Adam Bartos

*****
Panzer: Pzkpfw I ohne aufbau
A nice top view showing the interior. Note the "crash bar" railing around the main compartment.
The trooper taking driving lessons is of course dressed in cotton fatigues to save on his regular
black panzer uniform during training. For safety he is wearing the rubber lined crash helmet, covered by the Panzer beret.

Holidaysies here at DAMIJWH!

 No luck yet with the job hunting, but I will continue searching since I need something to do before I reach retirement at age 105....see you again August 4'th, and remember:

 Smile and be happy. Your enemies will hate it.
