Russian 45mm Anti-tank Gun

The Russians used 45mm anti-tank guns throughout WW2. In most wargaming rules, like Crossfire, they are rubbish. What kept them in use?

John Moher mentioned…

One thing to remember is the upgrade this weapon received in 1942-43. Originally it was about equal to the 2pdr and German 50mm L/42. Later the barrel was lengthened significantly to give it performance theoretically better than the PaK 38
