How to Operate an Elephant-Sized Lahti ANTI TANK GUN

How to Operate an Elephant-Sized Lahti ANTI TANK GUN — Lahti is a 20 mm anti tank rifle made in Finland and utilized during the Second World War. It had fantastic accuracy, penetration, and range, however its size made transportation troublesome. It was nicknamed “The Elephant Gun”, and as tanks developed armor too thick for the Lahti to penetrate, its uses changed to long range sniping. Soldiers observed the L-39 to be too heavy and hard to move in the combat zone. Indeed, even its magazine weighed nearly 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds), more than the Finnish Suomi M-31 sub machine gun. The magazines had a secured viewing window on the right side to show the quantity of rounds left in the magazine, and a 15-round magazine was later created for anti-aircraft use.
