Description

Built from experiences of the french front against tanks that pinged the KwK L/42 (50 mm) harmlessly off such as B1 bis made it clear to the german army that a new gun was in order.

Thus the longer gun that had been thoughth of not fitting the turret well was fitted on the tank with good success and fought in the eastern front

Vehicles equipped with this weapon

General info

The KwK-39 is best described as in lineage with the earlier KwK36 (37 mm) with not much damage per hit often requiring multiple shots to take out a tank, but with relatively good penetration and fast reload allowing for it to keep enemy modules offline if it gets the first shot

Available shells

Describe the shells that are available for the cannon and their features and purpose. If it concerns autocannons or machine guns, write about different ammo belts and what is inside (which types of shells).

Comparison with analogues

Give a comparative description of cannons/machine guns, that have firepower equal to these type of weapons.

Usage in battles

Describe the cannon/machine gun in the game - its distinctive features, tactics of usage against the main opponents. Please don't write a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought.

Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the weaponry in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark pros and cons as a list.

Pros:

Cons:

History

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of this weapon. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
