Designed shortly before the outbreak of World War II, the Pak 40 project 7.5 cm anti-tank project was shelved due to the lighting fast successes by the German army in the early stages of the war. When more heavily armored tanks were encountered in Russia, Pak 40 production was immediately ordered. The Pak 40 made its battlefield debut during the battle for Kharkov in May 1942. the PaK 40 was bigger and more powerful than its predesessors in every aspect, although it still had a remarkably low silhoutte, making it easy to conceal in spite of its increased size. The Pak 40 could defeat the armor of all but the heaviest Allied tanks up until the end of the war.
