I'm surprissed to find how many Hl granaten(heat rounds) were made and used in the Pak40 and KwK40, StuK 40. I tended to think that you used AP39/40 to fight tanks and HE to fight other targets. But why then so much HEAT. I guess it was cheaper to produce but for example PaK 40's most common targets would be the allies T-34's and Shermans. Was the Heat round enough?

The projectile itself was shared on Pak 40, StuK 40, KWK 40 and I think other 75 mm weapons. But not the 'Panther' L70 weapon.
Germans were quite clear on the use of the ammunition types. Do a deeper search here as it has been discussed before.
