7.5cm PaK50 Gun (GE516)

7.5cm PaK50 Gun (GE516)
includes two 7.5cm PaK50 guns with crew, one Command SMG team, one Observer Rifle team, two Large bases, one Small three-hole base & one Small two-hole base.

The design of the PaK50 combines the chassis of a 5cm PaK38 with a bored out barrel of the 5cm PaK38, using a large muzzle brake to stop the recoil tearing the combination apart. Both Its anti-tank capability and ranger were considerably better than the older infantry gun designs

The Ardennes Offensive
In December 1944 the German forces on the Western Front made one last major push in the Ardennes and Alsace-Lorraine, trying to split the Allied forces in half and force them to negotiate a peace treaty. It was a daring all-or-nothing gamble.

7.5cm PaK50 Gun (GE516)

The intention behind the design was to create a weapon with the same ballistic performance as the 7.5cm PaK40 but lighter and smaller; making it more manageable to handle for the crew as well as easier to conceal.

"Observer teams need a good view of the battlefield in order to do their job correctly. Be sure to deploy them in a position where they have an excellent view of the battlefield such as on a hilltop or on the top floor of a multi-level building."

Gun Shields
Manning a gun in the thick of battle is a hazardous job. To offset the increased vulnerability of gun crews to enemy fire, many guns have a bulletproof gun shield.

Gun Shields provide your Gun teams with Bulletproof Cover from shots fired from in front of a line drawn across the front of the team’s base. Shots fired from behind this line hit the unprotected crew behind the shield.

Gun Shields do not provide cover to teams moving At the Double, nor from artillery bombardments.
