    Fantastic shells Ben. Thank you for sharing the pictures.
    Are they part of your collection?

    Is the second projectile a H.K or a St.K?

    As everyone else has said, fabulous items Ben !!...thanks for showing.

    However, do you know to what equipment these items were issued, ie Anti-Tank guns, Stugs, PZ IV's etc? ...and in what sort of quantities and what front.

    Would love to know, there must be some data out there somewhere.

    Finally, where do I find one

    The Pak 41 was largest of the German Gerlich tapered-bore guns used in action.

    Designed by Krupp to compete with the Rheinmetall-Borsig Pak 40.

    150 guns were built before production stopped due to the restrictions placed on the use of tungsten in ammunition.

    The guns were used in service untill the ammunition supply ran out, after which they were scrapped. A small number of carriages may have been refitted with Pak 40 barrels.
