Not breech-loaded though. The crew had to get out of the tank to load it

Without reading this thread beyond the title, I was under the impression that the German 75mm may have been the best purebred antitank weapon of WWII? Not the much vaunted 88, and would be the real direct comparison to the 17 pounder/77mm guns...
