This was used to store all the onboard tools, spare parts, and lubricants on ONLY the Jagdpanzer 38 and Jagdpanzer IV/48! The 75mm Pak 39 (L/48) (7.5 cm Panzerabwehrkanone 39) was a WW2 German anti-tank gun. The gun was used to equip Jagdpanzer IV/48 and Jagdpanzer 38 "Hetzer" tank destroyers. The Pak 39 was an electrically fired weapon fitted with a semi-automatic breech mechanism and a 48 caliber long barrel.It was a formidable gun, able to destroy the most common allied tanks at up to 1,000 meters. It used the same 75 x 495R ammunition as the 7.5 cm KwK 40 of Panzer IV and 7.5 cm StuK 40 gun fitted on the Sturmgeschütz assault guns. The Pak 39 was manufactured from 1943 onwards by Rheinmetall-Borsig AG in Unterlüß and by Seitz-Werke GmbH in Bad Kreuznach. The main types of ammunition used were: Panzergranatpatrone 39 (APCBC), Sprenggranatpatrone 37 (HE) and different versions of the Granatpatrone 39 HL (HEAT). Made of wood, and used to transport various tool, lubricants, and spare parts, this box is in EXCELLENT used condition! Ere are some very slight marks, wear, and surface corrosion, however it is still VERY SOLID and retains 95% original paint! The original stencil still remains on the top, indicating. 7.5 cm PaK 39L/48. Sadly, the internal separator is missing. Hinge and latches function 100% correctly! C ould also be cleaned up quite easily for display! EXCEPTIONALLY RARE in this condition, I have indicaed where it was stored in the Jagdpanzer 38 in the last photos (though this restoration has not installed the correct box).
Would be a PERFECT addition to any collection or restoration project! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items.
Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
