Description

Issued to the German Army in April 1941, the 5cm PaK38 was the successor of the 3.7cm PaK36 anti-tank gun. Developed in the late 1930s by Rheinmetall-Borsig, the 5cm Pak38 soon proved its worth during the early campaigns and into Operation Barbarossa.

Mounted on a split trail, the gun was usually towed by half-track but was light enough to be manhandled into position with the aid of a third wheel fitted to the spade piece of the trail. Fitted with a gun shield to provide protection for the crew, the gun was capable of firing both Armor Piercing and High Explosive rounds.

In the hands of the highly motivated and experienced men of the Waffen-SS, the 5cm PaK38 provides a deterrent to enemy tanks in the absence of the Panzers.
