75mm Pak 40

The 75mm Pak 40 is Germany's standard towed anti-tank gun. Pak stands for Panzerabwehrkanone.

Combat Performance

The Pak 40 is essentially the same gun equipped by the Marder, StuG III and Panzer IV. Like all other towed anti-tank guns it is fielded only with armor-piercing ammunition which it uses against vehicles and tanks but is useless against infantry. For an anti-tank gun the Pak 40 compares favorably with the American 3-Inch M5 and Soviet ZiS-2, but is outclassed by the British 17-pounder. Like all towed guns, when built it is in its towed form; it must be moved to a location and deployed near a logistics source to be effective.
