    It looks British to me...

    I can't find any British 45mm gun though.

    Hi.

    It´s actually pre-WW2 and not swedish..... :D

    Hint: only a small pre-production series was made in early/mid 1939 = prototype status

    Hi.

    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.

    Data:

    designation: 4,5 cm Pak L/50 Krupp
    caliber: 45 mm
    barrrel length: 2350 mm (L/50)
    firing height: 785 mm
    recoil length: 75 mm
    total length transport: 4000 mm
    ground clearance: 280 mm
    wheels: 800 X 142 mm
    weight firing: 500 kg
    barrel weight including muzzle break: 163 kg
    ammunition weight: 2,75 kg
    grenade weight (ap): 1,385 kg
    maximum range: 7000 m
    muzzle velocity: 750 m/sec
    penetration ability: 45 mm on 1000 m
    traverse: - 30° to 30 °with open carriage
    - 5° to 5 ° with closed carriage
    elevation: - 10° to 20°
    rate of fire: 25 shots per minute
    maximum travel velocity: 70 km/h
