The 7.5 cm PaK 40 (7.5 cm Panzerabwehrkanone 40) was a German 7.5 centimetre antitank gun developed in 19391941 by Rheinmetall and used during the Second World War. PaK 40 formed the backbone of german antitank guns for the latter part of World War II, and was used in most war theatres. In this version,the gun is manned by WaffenSS. Uncompromising and wellequipped, the soldiers of the WaffenSS struck fear into the heart of many of their Allied opponents. Clad in their trademark camouflaged uniforms and displaying a tenacity and zeal bordering on the fanatical the WaffenSS were a dangerous opponent in both attack and defence.
