Item number #127 Nice relic condition German 5cm APC projectile from pak38 AT gun or panzer III tank. The Panzer III was intended as the primary battle tank of the German forces. However, when it initially met the KV-1 and T-34 tanks it proved to be inferior in both armour and gun power. To meet the growing need to counter these tanks, the Panzer III was up-gunned with a longer, more powerful 50mm gun kwk38 and received more armour but still was at disadvantage compared with the Soviet tank designs. As a result, production of self-propelled guns, as well as the up-gunning of the Panzer IV was initiated. Projectile comes with correct BdZ5103 fuze and tracer. All inert free from explosives.
