The product description

The 6 Pounder Anti-Tank Gun was designed in the late 1930's and ready for production in 1940. But the fall of France delayed production, due to urgent repeat orders for the 2 Pounder, until 1942. The 6 Pounder MkII was a 57 mm weapon initially manufactured  with a 43 caliber barrel length. On its entry into service it could defeat the armour of any German or Italian tank likely to be encountered.  Later MkIV guns had the longer L/50 barrel with muzzle brake, increasing the muzzle velocity.  The final version was the 6 Pounder MkIV on Carriage MkIII, generally referred to as the Airborne version. This had reduced width with shortened axles and redesigned armour shield. The length was also shortened by employing 2-piece trail legs joined by a socket and bolt. These modifications allowed the gun to be carried in the Horsa troop glider. Guns were usually towed into battle by the Airborne version of the Jeep. It was issued to Airlanding Anti-Tank Platoons of the Royal Artillery assigned to the 1st and 6th Airborne Divisions of the British Army, and Polish Airborne Brigade.
