The 45-mm gun was used by Soviet troops on almost all fronts and took part in all major battles on the Eastern Front, from first fights in the summer of 1941 to the assault of Berlin in 1945. By 1941 the gun was already obsolete and was not very effective against armor of newer German tanks. However, it remained the principle Soviet gun until 1943 when Soviet artillery was supplemented with sufficient quantities of more powerful guns.
