Recreate the influential German WWII anti-tank gun, the 37mm pak35/36, with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
The 3.7cm gun, which was 45 calibres long had a muzzle velocity of 762 metres per second (when firing an armour piercing projectile) and penetrated a 48mm armour plate standing erect at a distance of 457 metres.
The 3.7cm anti-tank gun was immediately accepted by the German Army and officially designated Anti-tank Gun Model 35/36 (PAK 35/36). In 1936, the Germans began to deliver the gun to the anti-tank gun company of each division as its standard equipment. It is reported that the excellent design of the then typical anti-tank gun exerted a great influence on the progress of anti-tank guns in the Soviet Union, the United States and Japan.
