The Gabha G-18 47mm Anti-Tank Gun was an anti-tank and vehicle gun produced by Gabha Blacksmiths Limited and used by the SDF-Army in a variety of roles. As an AT-gun, it was surprisingly light with only 755kg of weight including carriage, while the vehicle gun proved to be large and cumbersome, but very effective due to the shell's high velocity.
