The 57mm anti-tank gun M1943 (ZiS-2) is a Soviet anti-tank gun.

Description

Due to the appearance of Panther and Tiger I tanks, the Soviet Union developed the ZiS-2 to replaced the smaller caliber anti-tank guns already used by the Red Army and at the same time, to complement the ZiS-3 as the latter can only penetrate newer German tanks' frontal armour at close range.

The stationary model was introduced in the early stage of BattleGroup42 development and is removed from the mod, though it's newer but a previous model of ZiS-2 only available as tank destroyer in a form of ZiS-30.
