PaK 43/41 88mm is a German Anti-tank unit in Steel Division II.

Background[edit | edit source]

Allied tanks were being developed as the war progressed, and these designs incorporated the hard-won experience fighting against Germany. In response, the Germans sought a more potent gun to combat this new threat. The Pak 43, derived from the infamous Flak guns, was to be the answer. Production of the anti-tank gun started in 1943 and around 2000 towed anti-tank guns were delivered to the Wehrmacht in total. It was a devastatingly effective tool and was capable of hitting enemy vehicles at incredible distances.

Of course, the bulky and heavy Pak 43 proved difficult to manoeuvre and hard to emplace, especially in the soft terrain on the Eastern Front, and requests were made to mount the Pak 43 onto a viable chassis. This would lead amongst others to the infamous Jagdpanther and Königstiger.

78. Sturm has 4 Pak 43 organic to the division.

21. Panzer's Panzerjäger-Abteilung 200 had thee companies of PaK 43.
