Those Hungarian Anti-tank units that weren’t armed with the Zrìnyi or the Hetzer instead were armed with the effective 75mm 40M Anti-tank gun. This was the Hungarian designation for the German 7.5cm PaK40 Anti-tank gun.
Development of the 7.5cm PaK40 began in 1939, with both Krupp and Rheinmetall developing designs for testing. Initially the development was slow, but priority was soon given to the project after Operation Barbarossa begun in June 1941 and the appearance of heavy Soviet tanks such as the KV-1.

"The 75mm 40M Anti-tank gun is rated as a Medium gun, this give it 2”/5cm of movement (the same as a Heavy gun) in all terrain so be sure to deploy these guns in positions with excellent fields of fire. You don’t want to have to move too far to shoot at the enemy."
75mm 40M Anti-tank Gun (HU520) The gun retained many features of the lighter 5cm PaK38 gun. It had a muzzle brake to reduce recoil, a double skin shield for added protection of the breech, and torsion-bar suspension for motor towing. The trail retained the tubular arms of the 5cm PaK38 design, but was made of steel for added strength rather than the aluminium.

The 7.5cm PaK40 remained the standard German heavy anti-tank gun until the end of the war, and was also supplied to Germany’s allies such as Finland and Hungary.

"With an Anti-tank rating of 12, the 75mm 40M Anti-tank gun is the answer to all but the heaviest enemy tanks.  It will struggle to handle tanks such as the IS-2 but will make short work of a horde of T-34s."

For example, the Hungarian 2nd Army on the River Don received a total of six 7.5cm PaK40 in 1942. But by 1944 the Hungarians were receiving the PaK40 in large quanties.

"The 75mm 40M Anti-tank gun has a Gun shield which means that even if you fail a Gun save, your opponent must make a Firepower test to destroy that team. But remember, Gun shields only provide Bulletproof cover from shots fired from in front of the gun."
