Issue 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 Pak38 soon proved its worth during Operation Barbarossa as it was one of only a handful of waepons that could effectively penetrate the armour of the Soviet T-34. 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 Armour Piercing and High Explosive rounds.Pack contains 2 medium bases, 2 Anti-Tank guns and 8 crew.
