Self-propelled anti-tank guns

Self-propelled anti-tank guns are anti-tank guns mounted on vehicles. Sometimes lightly armored, and often fitted into a turret, they are none-the-less not tanks or assault guns and simply enhance the mobility of anti-tank guns. They are also capable of providing direct fire support.
