German Howitzer (PAK 43)

 

Another original leftover from the Battle of the Bulge is standing in the outer courtyard of the castle of Clervaux. Little is known of its provenance.

The PaK 43 was the most powerful anti-tank gun of the German Wehrmacht to see service in a large number of different types.

This iron lady survived the Battle of the Bulge without a scratch. It braved the elements for many years. As a result of this, this formerly proud anti-tank gun is in a pitiful condition today.

In the frame of taking care of the military patrimony, CEBA will organise the future restoration of this PAK 43. An agreement with national and international partners will be lined up. We keep you up-to-date on the restoration process on our facebook-page.
