I have put a little together. I would be glad to recieve any comments, and possibly corrections/additions.

Also, does anyone have any good books that I can use?

;) - wel, then it'll be interresting. I see that he gives the Pa.K. 43 as having 241mm/1000m. It should be noted, however, that he gives the numbers for 90 degrees (or 0 degrees) whereas the Germans used 30 degrees. So of course, this will 'improve' all of the weapons, but equally.

What does he write about the Pa.K. 43 besides this this in 'your' book?

that he gives the numbers for 90 degrees


Actually, his performance numbers are for 30 degrees.......

Here are some differences from the book compared to your article:

7,5cm Gebirgsgeschütz 36, made by Rheinmetall

10,5 LFH(M) is the same as 10,5 LFH, only with muzzlebrake added (same factory)

21 Cm Haubitze is called "Lange 21cm Mörser (Lg 21cm Mrs) in the book.

I`ll check out that Pak 43......
