Due to the lack of anti-tank weaponry and the losses on the Eastern Front, the Romanian Army required a type of weapon to replace these losses and supplement existing equipment that could be built in Romania. A third prototype that combined the best elements of captured Soviet weapons and existing Romanian equipment performed well in tests - better than the German PaK 40 and to the Soviet ZIS 1941 76.2mm - and entered production in December, 1943. Few were manufactured - less than 400 - and the gun first saw operational use in the Spring of 1944.
