History

Designed to replace the 6 pounder,  the Ordance QF 17 PDR was a 76.2mm (3 inch) gun developed in the UK in 1941, the first production guns were completed in April 1942 and by the end of the year 670 of the guns had been completed.    They were first used during the Italian campaign from 1943 to the end of WWII.

The 17-pounder outperformed all other Allied armour-piercing guns, and was quickly adapted for use on various tank chassis,  whilst earning the reputation  as the most effective Allied anti-tank weapon in the entire war.
