Default round for Pak 36 (r), tungsten core

Got this Shell a while ago. As far as I know, it is from the russian 7,62cm "RatschBumm", also used in the Wehrmacht, named Pak36 (r).

I guess it is tugsten core, russian made. Feared by the Germans, and Looking at the Shell I can imagine why.

Nice markings on warhead and Shell.

That was it from my side, no other Knowledge. Any additions welcome!

Thanks for the detailed Information, as always superb!

Since they were used in the Wehrmacht as well, are there german produced AP rounds as well, same style?

The Germans made their own types of AP shell.
