The Ordnance QF 6-pounder 7 cwt, or just "6 pdr", was a British 57 mm gun, their primary anti-tank gun during the middle of World War II, as well as the main armament for a number of armoured fighting vehicles. It was first used in North Africa in April 1942, and quickly replaced the 2 pounder in the anti-tank role, allowing the 25 pounder to revert to its intended artillery role. The US Army also adopted the 6 pdr as their primary anti-tank gun under the designation 57mm Gun M1.
The 6-pounders (and the US-built M1, of which 4,242 pieces were received) were initially issued to the Royal Artillery anti-tank regiments of infantry and armoured divisions in the western theatres (four batteries with 12 pieces each), and later in the war to the six-gun anti-tank platoons of infantry battalions. An airlanding battalion had an AA/AT company, with two four-gun AT platoons. The Far East theatres had lower priority and different organization, reflecting lower tank threat. The gun was also employed by Commonwealth forces, in formations similar to the British ones.
The 6-pounder first saw action in May 1942 at Gazala. It made an immediate impact on the battlefield as it was able to penetrate any enemy tank then in service. In the most celebrated action, the 6-pounder guns of 2nd Rifle Brigade destroyed more than 30 enemy tanks in the action at `Snipe` during the battle of Alamein.
In the Royal Artillery regiments the 6-pounders were gradually replaced by the 17-pounders starting in 1943, but in infantry units the gun remained in service until 1960, when it was finally declared obsolete.
In addition to being used by the US, British and commonwealth forces, the M1 was supplied under the lend lease program to the Free French Forces (653), USSR (400) and Brazil (57).
Israel employed the 6-pounder in 1950s in brigade-level anti-tank battalions and battalion-level anti-tank platoons (the latter formations were disbanded in 1953). By late 1955, Israel Defense Forces possessed 157 pieces and 100 more were purchased from the Netherlands in 1956, too late to enter service before the Suez Crisis.
The gun is also reportedly still in active military use with some South American countries.
The model is rigged for animation, and the product features four detailed resolutions of the model.
This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 8 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is rigged where appropriate, and mapped and textured.
