Vehicles in our database using this gun
Vehicle NameCommon Name
 SdKfz 231 Schwere Panzerspähwagen6 rad - Daimler Benz/Bussing NAG 
 SdKfz 231 Schwere Panzerspähwagen6 rad - Magirus 
 SdKfz 232 Schwere Panzerspähwagen6 rad - Magirus 
 SdKfz 263 Panzerfunkwagen6 rad - Magirus 
 

Hit probability is based on a static 2 x 2.4 metre panel at 0 degrees(vertical) at the range specified.

The data that has been used to create these records has come from Wikipedia, The Lone Sentry, The Bundes Archive and numerous books and websites that have provided the detailed information that has not been available anywhere else. The information we use to calculate the penetration tables, flight times and the hit probability comes from the Gun Calibre, the Shell Mass(Kg) and the muzzle velocity, plus range reductions to allow for gravity and wind resistance. This calculation originally came from a pre-war Krupp calculation which has been modified, and seems to fit the actual test results.
