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.
