Pak 42 is an anti-tank gun based on Pak 40 but with 70 cm gun barrel added, similar to one on Panther. As a result, it combines Pak 40's low silhouette and high mobility and fairly good penetration power.
Historically, this gun was installed on Jagdpanzer IV(V) and Panther tank, but there isn't any mention that there was towable version of this gun, so it's highly likely a fudge of the FHSW devs.
Ingame, it can be found on some late war maps, like Reichsbahn, Seelow Heights and Berlin Outskirts.
