British 17 Pr. Anti-Tank Gun
On Sale - Made to Order | �Permalink to G001
The Ordnance Q.F. 17 Pr. was produced from 1942 onwards, and was the best Allied anti-tank gun of WW-II, which was capable of destroying all German tanks at useful ranges. It was also by far the highest performing 76.2mm anti-tank weapon of WW-2.The flash produced when firing APDS ammunition earned the gun, and the later vehicles mounting it, the nickname ‘Firefly’. One standard WW-II towing vehicle was the Crusader Gun Tractor, and this excellent combination was deployed in Normandy after D-Day. Another very late war/Post war vehicle was the Albion FT15N low profile gun tractor. Post war the 17 Pr. was generally towed by turretless Stuart M3A3 tanks.
