The tables below give the armor penetration figures of the most common German guns used during the Second World War.

Listed is also some of the guns captured from other countries and used by the German armed forces. Some of these guns saw limited use. Others, such as the Czechoslovak 37 mm and 47 mm guns and the Russian 76.2 mm field gun, became an integral part of the German arsenal.

When using the test results, it is important to bear in mind the following:

  • Test plates were placed at an angle of 60 degrees from horizontal. Unless otherwise stated, the assumed impact angle is 60 degrees from horizontal.
  • The quality of the armor plates used to test ammunition would not always match real-world conditions.
  • Penetration numbers were not based solely on actual firing tests. Instead, penetration data from penetration tests would usually be extrapolated by adjusting for shell velocities. Because real-world penetration mechanics are much more complex than this, penetration numbers should only be considered a general guide.
  • Penetration data for different guns were calculated for different distances. As a result, the penetration data at some ranges are blank for some guns.
  • Some ammunition types, especially that with tungsten cores, was very rare. As the war progressed, German tungsten supplies became very low and production of tungsten-cored ammunition effectively ceased.

For a detailed description of the different ammunition type abbreviations, see the anti-tank ammunition types article.
