The 6pdr AT Gun was introduced in 1942, joining the lighter 2pdr, the new gun was more capable of dealing with the increasing thickness of Axis armour. The 6pdr first saw action in North Africa and was used throughout the war in Europe and Asia. It also armed a series of British armoured cars, tanks, ships and even aircraft!
In this video Matt looks at the history, development and use of Britain’s second dedicated anti-tank gun.
