Although the 2-pounder remained in service until the end of the war most frontline guns were replaced by the 6-pounder as the 2-pounder was not up to penetrating increasingly thick German armour. As a result the 2-pounder was moved on to Far East units where the Commonwealth troops faced the lighter-armoured Japanese tanks and armoured cars, the Home Guard and infantry anti-tank units.
