Fallschirmjager 7.5cm PaK40 Anti-Tank Platoon
Item Number: GBX33
Period: World War II
Fallschirmjager 7.5cm PaK40
Anti-Tank Platoon with four 7.5cm PaK40 anti-tank guns and command SMG team.
Development of the PaK40 begun in 1939, with the project initially given a low priority. However, upon the commencement of Operation Barbarossa and the appearance of heavily armoured Soviet tanks such as the KV-1, the project was given a higher priority. The first guns were delivered in November 1941 and became the standard German anti-tank till the end of the war.
The Fallschirmjager regiment has a few 7.5cm PaK40 anti-tank guns available to defend against enemy tanks. The PaK40 was a formidable gun, easy to hide and very effective at knocking out any Allied tank in service.
