M3 37mm Anti-tank Gun with Crew

The 37 mm gun M3 is the first dedicated anti-tank gun fielded by US forces in numbers.  Introduced in 1940, it became the standard anti-tank 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, but some 57mm guns were issued.
