Description:History of the Anti-tank Gun PAK 35/36It was in 1934 that the German Army ordered Rheinmettal A G to develop a new 3.7cm anti-tank gun. Rheinmettal ranked beside Krupp as the biggest gun maker of Germany and already manufactured the first 3.7cm anti-tank rapid firer in 1918. In 1935, Rheinmettal finished designing the new anti-tank gun. The overall weight was 450kg. Having two rubber-tired wheels, torsion bar suspension system and two rear trail legs, the gun could be easily moved by only a few men. A gun shield of 4mm thickness was fixed for the protection of the gun crew. The gunner was on the left side of the gun and could traverse it by 60 degrees both ways, elevate by 25 degrees and depress by 8 degrees. The loader was on the right side of the horizontal sliding breech block and the gun could make continuous fire at a rate of 15 rounds per minute. The 3.7cm gun which was 45 calibres long had a muzzle velocity of 762 meters per second (when firing and armour-piercing projectile) and penetrated a 48mm armour plate standing erect at a distance of 457 meters. 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, United States, and Japan.FeaturesPlastic pieces attached to sprues and molded in green and gray.                Four realistic figures - a gunner, commander, supplier, and loader;              figures may be placed where desired.                                         Anti-tank gun has moveable main body, trail legs, and tires.                   Gun shield may be bent to the front.                                           Includes an ammo case with ammunition.                                         Detailed pictorial instructions label numerous parts of the anti-tank            gun.                                                                                                                                              INCLUDES: One 1/35 German 3.7 Anti-Tank Gun with Four Figures                                                                                                 REQUIRES: Assembly                                                                       Cement for plastics (DEV180)                                                 Paint: Field Gray, Flat Black, Flesh, Metallic Gray, German Gray,                Gold, Dark Yellow, Field Gray                                                Brushes                                                                        Sprue Cutter                                                                   Modeling Knife                                                                 File or Emery Board                                                            Adult Supervision                                                                                                                                   SPECS:    Scale: 1/35   Shipping PolicyWe do combine shipping please ask for invoice.Please look at the estimated time which is below price.International customers are responsible for customs duty and any taxes(if they have them).International buyers may experience delivery delays due to customs and other  unforeseen event that will vary delivery time.
