The 37mm Gun M3 is the first dedicated anti-tank gun fielded by US forces in numbers during WW2. Introduced in 1940, it became the standard AT gun of the US infantry with its size enabling it to be pulled by a jeep. However, the continuing improvement of German tanks quickly rendered the 37mm ineffective and, by 1943, it was being gradually replaced in the European and Mediterranean theaters by the more powerful British-developed 57mm Gun M1. In the Pacific, where the Japanese tank threat was less significant, the M3 remained in service until the end of the war.
Like many other light anti-tank guns, the M3 was widely used in the infantry support role and as an anti-personnel weapon, firing high-explosive and canister rounds.
The M3 vehicle-mounted variant was used on the Dodge WC-55 M6 Fargo.
Prototypes of the Sherman V (M4A4) and Firefly VC are finally completed; now awaiting approval before moving to the mould making queue.
