Notes

  1. The 75 mm le I G 18 was to be replaced by the 8 cm Granatwerfer 34 80 mm mortar. The barrels of the le I G 18 were to be mounted in surplus 3,7 cm Pak gun mounts. In addition to optimizing production of guns and shells, the suggestion to phase out the le I G 18 was based on the reduced weight and increased mobility of the 8 cm GrW 34. The roles where the le I G 18 was superior to the 8 cm GrW 34 would be taken over by the s I G 33. Back
  2. The 150 mm mortar that was under development was considered a possible replacement for the s I G 33, assuming the mortar could compete with the s I G 33 in terms of precision fire and air bursts. Back
  3. To be replaced by the 7,5 cm Gebirgsgeschütz 43. Back
  4. To be replaced by the 12,8 cm Kanone 44, when circumstances permitted. Back
  5. To be replaced by the 21 cm Kanone 52. Back
  6. To be replaced by the K 4 (Rp.). Back
  7. It is not clear from the report what is meant by u.U.mot Z. Back
