During the Spanish Civil War, light anti-tank guns such as the German Pak 36 proved successful in neutralising the threat posed by tanks. Seeing the value of such a weapon, the Ordnance Committee begun the development of the M3 based on these concepts. The resulting weapon was first issued to US Armed Forces in 1940 and the M3 37mm become the first gun in US service dedicated to an anti-tank role. The M3 provides an effective defence against light tanks and halftracks with its high rate of fire.

|Fow-us510||M5 3in Gun||11.03||Blister mit zwei Geschützen.
The 3in Gun M5 is an anti-tank gun developed by the US from the T9 3in anti-aircraft gun. In late 1940 the US Ordnance Corps began to adapt the T9 3in Gun to the anti-tank role.
The barrel of the T9 was combined with the horizontal sliding block breech, hydropneumatic recoil system and split-trail carriage of the M2 105mm howitzer. The prototype test weapon was designated the T-10 and began trials in September 1941. Field trials soon proved the new weapon was a great improvement over existing US anti-tank guns. ||Battlefront||Flames of War|

The success of the German army in 1939-40 cause the US army to re-evaluate much of its AAA equipment and capabilities. ||Battlefront||Flames of War|
