The Panzerbüchse 39 (German: Tank Rifle) was a single-shot anti-tank rifle developed in Germany that was first produced in 1939. Developed from the earlier PzB 38, the weapon was the Wehrmacht's standard infantry anti-tank weapon during the early portion of World War II. The weapon used a relatively narrow cartridge, a lengthened version of the standard 7.92mm rifle bullet, that could achieve a velocity high enough to penetrate up to 25mm of armor out to 300m distance. While this was sufficient for disabling light vehicles, the increasing effectiveness of armor on Allied tanks throughout the war rendered the weapon mostly obsolete, leading to its official removal from service in 1944.
— In-Game Description
The rifle functions as an anti-armor rifle, featuring a one round magazine and reload time of 3.8 seconds. The weapon provides moderate to significant damage to enemy vehicles. It can deal between 25 and 40 damage to tanks, 40 damage to planes, 30 damage to jeeps, and consistently 40 damage to infantry.
