Could the vehicle the Paratroopers saw be one of these from the 21. Panzerdivision?

It's a 7.5cm PaK40 mounted on a ex-French S307(f) half-track. Found the image in a google image search.

Thanks!
P.S. And sorry - I haven't noticed the name of the picture with the words "Tatra 85 truck". :oops:

Best regards, Aleks
This T 85 tanker is the prototype with a round - not an oval - tank
