Army Tanks

The Stahlwerke Becker 20mm automatic cannon was a very light anti-tank weapon that was fed from a magazine.

A few of these were used in combat in early 1918. But, they were problematic in use under combat conditions at the front line, proving difficult to handle and aim.

As an anti-tank gun they were used with solid, non-explosive rounds but they were soon withdrawn with the intention of using them as anti-aircraft guns with exploding rounds.
