Description

The 3.7cm PaK36 was Germany standard anti-tank weapon at the outbreak of war in 1939; over 15,000 PaK36s had been manufactured by 1941.

It proved to be an excellent weapon during the early years of the war until the introduction of well-armored tanks such as the T-34 rendered it obsolete. This didn’t halt its career; it remained an important secondary weapon.

The design was conventional but rather heavy for its intended purpose. Originally intended to be horse drawn, later versions had rubber tire wheels and air brakes to allow them to be towed by vehicles. Attempts were made to lighten the gun but not many of this version were made, as the alloys needed for the job were more essential to aircraft production.

It could fire a 38kg (84lb) HE or smoke shell out to 4700m at the rate of 2-3 rpm. A hollow charge round was developed but was mainly used to destroy bunkers and other fortifications. A Steilgranate round was developed as well but was also rarely used.
