Flames of War: German Volksgrenadier 7.5cm Gun Platoon (GE516)
Volksgrenadier 7.5cm Gun Platoon (GE516)
Includes two metal 7.5cm Guns with crew.
The Volksgrenadier divisions are among the first to receive a new generation of infantry guns. The 7.5cm PaK50 is a more sophisticated gun based on the 5cm PaK38 breach with a new 7.5cm gun barrel on the light 5cm PaK38 trail. It has almost the same power as the 7.5cm PaK40, but uses a large muzzle brake to prevent the weapon being ripped apart every time it fires. PaK50 infantry gun is lighter, being based on the trail of the 5cm PaK38 anti-tank gun. They are highly mobile, so they can keep up with and support assaults with direct fire of high-explosives or by firing bombardments to keep the enemy's heads down.
