The 75mm GW 39H was a tank destroyer which was built on the chassis of a captured Hotchkiss tank. The Germans managed to capture large numbers of Hotchkiss tanks in 1940 and 24 were converted to carry the 75mm PaK 40. The design was similar to the previous work done to convert the Lorraine Schlepper, except for the difference in armour. All of these tank destroyers were stationed in France and seventeen were issued to the 21st Panzer division. Designer M Bergman
