The proper name of this weapon is ‘7.5cm leichtes Infanteriegeschütz’ & it was an infantry support gun used in large numbers throughout the war. It had already long been in service when war broke out in 1939, and although its range was short it was well liked by the troops, although it had little anti-tank capability and was rarely used in that role.

This model is not intended as a high-detail recreation but more of a simplified model representing the gun. It is constructed of only six parts and therefore builds really quickly, producing a very reasonable model which naturally lacks a lot of detail but still represents the gun well. Early examples of this gun were given wooden spoked wheels suitable for horse-drawn transport, but later these were replaced with solid metal wheels with rubber tyres better suited to motorised transport. Every gun in this set has the option of using either type of wheel.

The gun called for a crew of six, but this set includes four men per gun. The poses are fairly generic and are much the same as those found in other HaT German artillery sets released at the same time. The difference between these crews is the uniform, and in this case the crew all wear smocks and helmet covers plus the usual German straps. The officer has a pistol on his belt but the rest have the usual rifle ammunition pouches, and no one has any other item of kit.

Plenty of better models of this gun exist, and certainly better crew figures are to be found. However this set provides a decent model that is quickly put together and relatively inexpensive to build up into a good number of guns if desired.
