While checking the TK# of Stg41 heat ammo that the german 37 AT gun fires I noticed a 47 listed.. after looking through all the listed guns.. I don't see any 47 heat listed as ammo.. theres a 40 Hungarian AT gun that fires the same ammo as the 37, but no 47 anywhere I can find. Does anyone know where this came from? also when does the German heat ammo start its use.. Hungarian 40 starts 1/43, but I'd guess the German should be earlier.

Ok may 42 is start on German heat.

I think the 47mm column on the HEAT chart is an error. Perhaps there was a 47mm Gun sometime in playtest and it was excluded by the chart was updated - just guessing.

A Google search for "47mm HEAT" shows that the Italians apparently had domestically made HEAT rounds ("Effetto Pronto") for the 47/32 M35 AT gun. They reportedly became available in January/February 1942.

It doesn't look like 47 mm heat should be a K# of 26.. based on italian heat like those.. I was thinking they had a spigot type of round like the Stg41.. will need to do research.
