7.5cm PaK 40 is a German anti-tank gun.

DescriptionEdit

Produced in large numbers, the PaK 40 was the mainstay of German anti-tank guns for the latter part of the war. Its anti-tank capability was much better than its predecessors, being effective against most tanks up to the end of the war except the new heavy protected ones that appeared on the Battlefield from mid 1944 on. The gun was also installed on varius tracked chassis and used as a self propelled gun, for example with the famous Sturmgeschütz III and even in battle tanks like the Panzer IV.

In Battlegroup42, the PaK 40 is usually available as a stationary weapon, but it can also be found towed by an Opel Maultier.
