Spotlights
M5 3″ Towed Tank Destroyer Platoon (UBX22)
The 3″ Gun M5 is an anti-tank gun developed by the US from the T9 3″ anti-aircraft gun. In late 1940 the US Ordnance Corps began to adapt the T9 3″ Gun to the anti-tank role.

Para M2A1 105mm Howitzer (US573)
The American 105mm field howitzer was already developed in the 1920s as the “105mm Howitzer M1” up to pre-production stage. However, the gun did not go into production, since large numbers of the older WWI vintage 75mm field guns were still in service. It was put on the back burner until war finally broke out for the US in 1941. The gun and carriage of the 105mm howitzer were each designated M1.

M51 Quad .50cal AA (US547)
Mounted in a quad configuration, the M2 .50cal machine gun made a highly effective anti-aircraft weapon in the hands of the American soldier during World War Two.

HG 7.5cm PaK40 Gun (GE522)
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.
