Altogether 262 older Panzerkampfwagen III were converted to Panzerbeobachtungswagen III - armoured observation vehicle - (Sd. Kfz. 143) from February 1943 to April 1944. The vehicles had only a dummy gun. In place of the Kw.K., an machine gun ball mount was installed. The machine gun ball mount of the radio operator was replaced by a machine pistol port. The vehicle had additional radio equipment. On the roof of the turret, a Turmbeobachtungsfernrohr 2 - turret observation telescope 2 - and a Sehstab - visual rod - were installed.
