Product Description

The British 2 Pr No 2 1942 CF Round refers to a specific type of ammunition used by the British military during World War II. This particular round is designed for the 2-pounder anti-tank gun, which was widely used by British and Commonwealth forces during the early to mid-20th century.

Key features of the British 2 Pr No 2 1942 CF Round include:

  1. Caliber and Type: The "2 Pr" designation indicates that this ammunition is intended for the 2-pounder gun, which had a caliber of approximately 40mm. The "No 2" designation refers to a specific variant or modification of the round, while "1942" indicates the year of production.

  2. Armour-Piercing Capability: The CF (Capped and Filled) round typically refers to an armour-piercing projectile that is capped with a hardened metal tip and filled with an explosive or incendiary compound. These rounds were specifically designed to penetrate enemy armour, such as tanks and armoured vehicles, and inflict damage to critical components or crew inside.

  3. Effectiveness: The 2-pounder gun and its associated ammunition were effective against the lighter armored vehicles of their time, including early German tanks such as the Panzer I and Panzer II. However, as the war progressed and heavier tanks were introduced, the effectiveness of the 2-pounder gun diminished, leading to the development of more powerful anti-tank weapons.

  4. Manufacture and Use: The 2 Pr No 2 1942 CF Round would have been manufactured in British ammunition factories during World War II and supplied to British and Commonwealth forces engaged in combat operations around the world. These rounds would have been loaded into ammunition belts or stored in ammunition crates for use in combat.
