The 3,7-cm Pak 36 was used in the 2nd World War by the German Wehrmacht. Becauase of the small caliber of 3.7 cmthey had only
a low penetration force. Because of the small caliber it was called as "armor-knocking cannon" by German soldiers.
This weapon had no chance against heavy armor.
The PaK 36 was already developed 1925 and tested from 1928 with the Reichswehr. From 1937 the cannon was however obsolete,
since she was no longer able to pierce all known armorings at a distance of 1000 meters.
Despite the inadequate penetration force, the Pak 36 was used by the Wehrmacht until the end of World War II.
