The Quick-Firing 6-pounder is a 57mm anti-tank gun which made its combat
debut in the Gazala battles in May and June 1942. Dug-in and firing at only
point blank range, these guns are deadly to enemy tanks.
Its only real downside is its height, which makes it a conspicuous target in
the desert. The placement of the 75mm gun makes it difficult to conceal the tank
in a hull-down position behind terrain. At Alam el Halfa, with time to prepare a
static defence, the British were able to partly overcome these difficulties by
carefully choosing the placement of each Grant.
