The 5 cm Pak 38 (L/60) (5 cm Panzerabwehrkanone 38 (L/60)) was a German anti-tank gun of 50 mm caliber developed in 1938 and used by the Axis powers in WWII. The gun was first used in 1941 as a successor to the PAK 36, Pak 37 had been designed in 1935, but never used due to its low capabilities. The gun remained in service until the end of the war and was one of the few early guns capable of penetrating the 45 mm sloped armor of the T-34's hull at close range. It could also be equipped with Panzergranate 40 APCR ammunition with a hard tungsten core against the heavy KV-1 tank.
