37mm WZ 36 Bofors - Lego compatible COBI 2159 - 70 brick anti-tank gun
Anti-tank and infantry support gun designed by Bofors of Sweden in the early 1930s. The WZ 36 was exported to several countries and many bought licences to produce it themselves. It is best remembered for its successful performance against light tanks and armoured cars during the Spanish Civil War and the Winter War and it was also used as the main armament in armoured cars and tanks such as the Polish 7TP. With the rapid increase in the efficiency of tank armour as World War II wore on the Bofors quickly became obsolete but with its high fire rate, good mobility and effective high explosive shells it still made a very effective infantry support gun, in fact it was still in use well into the Cold War years.
