Maybe one of those Vickers-Berthier .303 lmg?
That's it Tom! The quiz is now yours
A nice one:
Soviet 45mm AT gun?
I think it's Japanese. Type 38 75mm Heavy Gun?
No, it´s not japanese at all.
By the way, Gunter_Viezenz got the right caliber.
Two hints in one post...... :roll:
It looks British to me...
I can't find any British 45mm gun though.
probably a skoda?
Not british, not Skoda.
It looks post-war to me... Swedish?
It´s actually pre-WW2 and not swedish.....
Hint: only a small pre-production series was made in early/mid 1939 = prototype status
but the carriage looks very similar to the pak 36,?
A nice hint, me262.
It´s getting warmer.
It´s german, 45 mm caliber and pre-war........
i give up,
I see no further possible hint. So here it comes:
This is the 4,5 cm L/50 Pak prototype by Krupp, developed in late 1938/early 1939. A small pre-series production was made in 1939 for trials.
The Pak is a parallel development to the 4,7 cm Pak Rheinmetall/ 5 cm Pak 38. The 4,7 cm Pak Rheinmetall was sold to the netherlands and captured as 4,7 cm Pak 188(h) in 1940.
The 4,5 cm Pak was designed for export, mainly to the Soviet Union. As the soviets decides to upgun their 3,7 cm Pak Rheinmetall with the 4,5 cm barrel the 4,5 cm Pak Krupp was never built.
