From February to April 1943, altogether 100 exemplars of the Panzerkampfwagen III (Flamm) - battle tank III (flame thrower) - (Sd. Kfz. 141/3) were made based on the chassis of the Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf. M. Additional 30 mm thick armoured plates were welded to the lower hull front on these vehicles. In older literature, it is claimed that these vehicles were later converted to normal Panzerkampfwagen III with a gun armament. This is not true. These vehicles were delivered to several Panzer regiments and were used up in the folowing time.
