ⓘ 3.7 cm Pak 36

The Pak 36 is a 3.7 cm caliber German anti-tank gun used during the Second World War. It was the main anti-tank weapon of Wehrmacht Panzerjager units until 1942. Developed by Rheinmetall in 1933, it was first issued to the German Army in 1936, with 9.120 being available by the beginning of the war in September 1939 and a further 5.339 produced during the war. As the predominant anti-tank gun design in the world during the late 1930s, demand was high for the Pak 36, with another 6.000 examples produced for export and the design being copied by the Soviet Union as the 45 mm anti-tank gun M1932 and by other nations such as Japan.

He first saw service during the Spanish Civil war in 1936, where he played well against light tanks of the conflict. It was first used during the Second world war against Poland in 1939 and there were small difficulties with any of the Polish tanks. The battle of France in 1940 revealed inadequate penetration against the French and British heavy tanks, getting a mocking "door knocker" nickname from his crew, but it was enough to win the Bulk of the allied armor in the campaign. The invasion of the Soviet Union brought Pak 36 face-to-face with a large number of T-34 and KV-1 tanks that were invulnerable to his fire. However, 91% of Soviet tank forces in 1941 consisted of the easier types that do not have sufficient armor to defeat guns, Pak 36 and knocked out thousands of tanks.

Pak 36 was replaced in the late 1940 forward 5 cm Pak 38 anti-tank gun, and from November 1941 to 7.5 cm PAK 40. This process was accelerated in connection with the modern Soviet tanks and Pak 36 production completely ceased in early 1942. Introduction in 1943, the Stielgranate 41 shaped charge gave him the opportunity to penetrate the armor of any allied tank, but ammunition short range made Pak 36 crews vulnerable to enemy fire and can not solve the fundamental instruments of obsolescence. German paratroopers used a gun because of its low weight and, as a consequence of high maneuverability. Pak 36 was also used by the axis-allied second line, garrison and training units until the end of the war.
