5 cm KwK L/42

Post by Metzler » 09 Apr 2009 12:14

Hello all

Does anybody have detailed drawings and information on measurements on the 5 cm KwK L/42? I'm also looking for detailed drawings and information on measurements for the ammo (Pzgr.Patr. Kw.K.; Pzgr.Patr. 39 Kw.K.; Pzgr.Patr. 40 Kw.K. and Sprgr.Patr. 30 Kw.K.).

Similar information for the 5 cm KwK L/60 would also be useful.

Thanks Markus,

Great pics!! From which book are they? Do you have similar pics on the L/60 gun and ammo?

Thanks Metzler,
They're from "Waffen-Revue", unfortunately now defunct German weapons magazine. They were published in No. 77 of the mag in 1990. Can't help with KwK 39 measurements but below are a couple of L/60 ammo pics from "Munitionslexikon, Band 2" by Karl R. Pawlas.
