Description

Bolt Action: 8th Army 6 Pounder ATG

The QF 6-pdr was the highly successful replacement for the 2-pdr, beingcopied by the Americans as the 57mm gun, M1. Its useful lifespan was extended bynew developments in ammunition that improved its armour penetrationcapabilities, allowing it to knock out Panthers and Tigers from the flank.

Although supplemented by the 17-pdr, it was never entirely replaced andcontinued to serve in infantry units long after the war ended. The 6-pdrreplaced the 2-pdr as the standard weapon in British tanks as it becameavailable, but even as it did so, a replacement was being sought. Although HEshells were available, the limited size of charge meant they were relativelyineffective, making the 6-pdr less than ideal as a tank gun and leading to thedevelopment of the 75mm weapon used in British tanks such as the Cromwell andChurchill. The QF 6-pdr used by British airborne forces had a special carriagethat allowed them to be towed as if they were light anti-tank guns.
