7.62 Cm Pak 36(r) - Production


First guns were delivered in February 1942, and by the end of the year Germans converted 358 pieces, 169 in 1943 and 33 in 1944. Additionally, 894 barrels were prepared for use in self-propelled guns. It is likely that these numbers include Pak 39(r), a similarly upgraded 76-mm M1939 (up to 300 pieces).

Famous quotes containing the word production:

    The society based on production is only productive, not creative.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    The problem of culture is seldom grasped correctly. The goal of a culture is not the greatest possible happiness of a people, nor is it the unhindered development of all their talents; instead, culture shows itself in the correct proportion of these developments. Its aim points beyond earthly happiness: the production of great works is the aim of culture.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
