This weapon is another example of the German tendency to mount a large variety of guns
on self-propelled mounts. These weapons have been in action in North Africa. The
accompanying sketch is based on photographs of a captured specimen.
The weapon consists of a Russian 76.2-mm gun mounted on the Czech 38 (t) light
tank chassis. The gun has a traverse of about 40 degrees, and an elevation of
minus 5 degrees to plus 20 degrees. It is an adaptation of the standard Russian
light field piece, which is reported to have a maximum range of about 15,000 yards
and a muzzle velocity of about 2,300 to 3,400 feet per second; it fires a projectile
weighing about 15 pounds.
