The 5cm PaK38 anti-tank gun defends the rifle company against enemy tanks. Whether entrenched in a defensive position or being dragged forward in an attack, the PaK38 is useful against any type of threat.
After the Spanish Civil War, the German authorities started to think that a new anti-tank gun would be needed, even though the 3.7 cm Pak 36 had proven to be very successful. They asked Rheinmetall-Borsig to produce a new and more capable AT-gun. The 5 cm PaK 38 was approved for mass production in 1939.
Armor-piercing projectiles fired by this gun were known to pierce the armor of British infantry and cruiser tanks as well as that of U.S. light and medium tanks. The gun proved especially effective in jamming tank turrets by hits at the junction of the turret and hull. These hits fuse the metal of the two parts together and immobilise the turret. The guns low profile and size made it particularly difficult to spot often allowing it to get the first shot off against enemy tanks.
