Listing Detail Tabs

3 inch Gun M5 was an anti-tank gun developed in the United States during
World War II. The gun combined a 3-inch (76.2 mm) barrel of the anti-aircraft
gun T9 and elements of the 105 mm howitzer M2. The M5 was issued exclusively to
the US Army tank destroyer battalions starting in 1943. It saw combat in the
Italian Campaign and in the Northwest Europe campaign.

While the M5 outperformed earlier anti-tank guns in the US service, its
effective employment was hindered by its heavy weight and ammunition-related
issues. Losses suffered by towed TD battalions in the Battle of the Bulge and
the existence of more mobile, better protected alternatives in the form of
self-propelled tank destroyers led to gradual removal of the M5 from front line
service in 1945.
