pak 38 tow vehicle question...

Recommended Posts

I am working on a diorama centered around a pak 38 AT gun being towed. I wanted to do something a little different and was wondering if a kubelwagon was used or even able to tow a pak 38 with it's realitivly weak engine?

It would probably smoke the clutch pretty fast. A Kubelwagen could probably move a PaK38 on level paved roads, but other than that, no way.

SdKfz10 or bigger. Even a Protze would be kind of small.

fixed I wrote PaK50 'cause I was thinking 50mm.

Concur. The SdKfz 10 was pretty standard, they even mounted some of the PaK 38 50mm guns on SdKfz as interim tank destroyers early on.

I think the largest guns the Protze ever towed was the Pak 36 37mm anti-tank and the 75 mm leichtes Infanteriegeschütz 18. It also towed the 20mm Flak 30/38 as well as being an ammo carrier.

Either a SdKfz 10, SdKfz 11, Opel 3 ton truck or in some cases SdKfz 251 were commonly used to tow PaK 38's.
