For the Steel Division: Normandy 44 unit see SD:PaK 36 37mm

PaK 36 37mm is a German Anti-tank unit in Steel Division II.

Background[]

The Pak 36 was first produced in 1928 and first used in the Spanish Civil War in 1936, where it proved very effective against light tanks. Its limitations became clear during the Battle of France, as British Mathilda II tanks and French Char B1 tanks were impervious against the light calibre anti-tank guns. Nevertheless, the majority of Allied tanks were light tanks and vulnerable to the Pak 36.

During operation Barbarossa, the Pak 36 could deal with the BT-7 and T-26 light tanks. However, the AT gun was grossly inadequate against the T-34 and KV-1. Pak 38s gradually started replacing the Pak 36 in mid-1941, though it remained the standard AT gun for many units until 1942. As the T-34 became the standard replacement for lost light tanks in late 1941, the Pak 36 became all but obsolete.

Sicherungs Regiment 1 has a anti tank company equipped with 12 37mm Anti-tank guns. [1]
