ⓘ 7.5 cm Pak 40

The 7.5 cm Pak 40 was a German 75 millimetre anti-tank gun developed in 1939–1941 by Rheinmetall and used during the Second World War. With 23.303 examples produced, the Pak 40 formed the backbone of German anti-tank guns for the later part of World War II, mostly in towed form, but also on a number of tank destroyers such as the Marder series.

Was a modified version of the gun designed specifically for the car-install the 7.5 cm KwK 40, which differed primarily in the use of more compact ammunition, thus allowing more rounds to be carried in vehicles. Armed with a KWK 40 German mid-war tank designs and the destroyer gun PaK 40 on the second.

Depending on the source, the PAK 40 can be referred to as 7.5 / L46, referring to the length of the barrel in calibers. There were two versions of the KWK 40, which will be referred to as 7.5 / L43 or 7.5 / Л48.
