Belgian FRC C 60 / L50 D 60mm Anti-tank gun

Is this a historical gun or something new for WW?

If it's new, I'm a little curious as to what would have prompted such a large (for 1935-36) bore AT gun, when the Belgians have been friendly or allied with the Dutch and the French and Germany's largest tank up until 1935 has been the Christie M1931, with all of maybe 3/4" of somewhat sloped armor on the bow and only available in tiny numbers (less than 2 companies worth).

Historical, a fortress gun mounted at Eben Emael, Fort Battice and others. OTL Eben-Emael was completed in 1935. I think I had a post starting it back in 1932 or so- a year late if I'm right.

Edit: Thinking about it, that means the Belgians mounted these when the biggest German tank was a Pz-I, the 60mm could likely ventilate that at all ranges.

I expect I will wind up converting it to a vehicle/towed weapon as Wesworld becomes more cluttered with tanks that belong in the 1940s.
