History

The 8.8 cm Pak (Panzerabwehrkanone) 43 was an anti-tank gun,  used by the Wehrmacht mechanized infantry units during World War II.  Manufactured by Krupp, between 1943 and 1945,  2098 were produced.  Nicknamed by German troops  Scheunentor “Barn Door“ due to  it’s bulk.

The 8.8 cm Pak 43 was an effective anti-tank gun, more than  capable of destroying  Soviet and Allied tank and armored vehicle. Hauled to the battlefield by trucks or tracked military vehicles, it was mounted on a two-wheeled split-trail carriage. With its 6.61m-long rifled barrel, it had an effective range of 4,000 m, being able to punch holes in a 140mm-thick steel plate, with a 30º inclination, located at 2,000 m away.
