The 7.5 cm Pak 97/38 (full name "7.5 cm Panzerjägerkanone 97/38") was a German anti-tank gun developed in 1942 by converting captured French and Polish 75 mm Model 1897 guns made by the company Schneider. Basically the Germans mounted the barrel on the readily available 5 cm Pak 38 split trail carriages. This gun was primarily inteded to be used with HEAT rounds as this type of round's penetration ability is not based on velocity of the projectile but rather uses the hollow charge principle. It served alongside the 7.5 cm Pak 40 on all major fronts.
