While it is just possable that this model saw service toward the end of the North African campaign, I have not been able to find any photographic evidence so far. The 75mm armed Ausf N did, however, see use in the Tunisian campaign. The DAK by that time comprised the 15th & 21st Panzer Divisions, 90th Light Division, with the 10th Panzer div reinforcing them in Tunisia.

The only pictures that I can find of it place the Ausf M's in Russia. There wasn't much need for the deep wading kit on the Ausf M in Tunisia :-)
