Watch What Happens When You Shoot An Anti-Tank Gun At A Pickup Truck
So, if you just happen to have an old anti-tank gun just collecting dust in your garage and you want to see what it’ll do to an old pick-up truck…then you’ve come to the right place. The weapon they’re using in the video is a 7.5 cm Pak 40. It was a German 75 millimeter anti-tank gun developed in 1939-1941 by Rheinmetall and used during the Second World War. The Pak 40 formed the backbone of German anti-tank guns for the latter part of World War II, mostly in towed form, but also on a number of tank destroyers such as the Marder series. Approximately 20,000 Pak 40’s were produced.
The Pak 40 was effective against almost every Allied tank until the end of the war. The Pak 40 was much heavier than the Pak 38; its decreased mobility meant that it was difficult or even impossible to move without an artillery tractor on boggy ground.
