The table lists armour penetration values pour canons Yougoslaves at 0 to 100 meters range et 0 degrees inclination of armour. Dates indicate the year when a particular shell type entered production, not necessarily the year of availability to combat units. New shell types would take several months to reach the troops at the front, some favoured units receiving the new shells more quickly than others. Andrew Mark Reid is the author of Panzergranate, a set of miniature wargame rules using carefully researched gunnery data to simulate armour penetration results.
|Canon de char de 37 mm L.21 SA18 Puteaux||A.P. (Rupture M.1916)||27 mm|
|Canon de char de 37 mm L.21 SA18 Puteaux||A.P. (Rupture M.1927)||31 mm|
|Most chars français were armed avec the 37 mm L.21, except for the R-40, S-35, Char B und Char 2.C. En 1940 a hasty rearming programme was begun after it was found that the 37 mm L.21 could not penetrate les chars allemands even at point blank range und firing from behind. The plan was to rearm tout les chars avec the 37 mm L.33 gun, which was nearly useless as well, but only a few chars F.C.M.36 had been converted by the time France was overrun und the campaign ended.|
|37 mm L.32.3 Skoda 70/37 Infantry Gun||A.P. (Manganese Steel)||47 mm|
|The Skoda 70/37 infantry gun had a 70 mm L.11.4 gun barrel mounted on the carriage, et a spare 37 mm L.32.3 barrel which could be inserted into the larger barrel quand obus antichar had to be fired. Yugoslav infantry regiments had a company of four Skoda 70/37 infantry guns, et an additional compagnie de quatre canons antichar Skoda. The Skoda 70/37 was purchased in the 1920s, et it was almost certainly similar in design au canon de 37 mm L.33 du char léger FIAT M.3000.|
|37 mm L.40 Skoda A.3 Canon Antichar||A.P.||58 mm|
|37 mm L.47 Skoda A.7 Canon Antichar||A.P.||69 mm|
The Yugoslav rearmament program seems to have been a response to the possible threat of invasion from les forces italiennes de Mussolini. La Yougoslavie bought all R.A.F. Hawker Fury fighters when they were replaced by Hurricanes, Defiants, et Gladiators during 1937. In turn, the Yugoslav air force replaced its Brequet 19 avec Hawker Fury. However, Brequet 19 remained in service avec ground attack units. Most of these planes were destroyed on the ground, but 30 Brequet 19 biplanes survived, et were captured by the Wehrmacht. Six of these were sent aux forces aériennes italiennes for the purpose of training air force pilots croates. One pilot later defected to partisan forces, et another reached allied forces fighting en Italie en 1943.
