45mm anti-tank gun M1937 (53-K) is a Soviet anti-tank gun.
The 45mm M1937 (53-K) was the standard anti-tank gun fielded by the Soviet Union in the early stage of the war. Its carriage was modified from the German 3.7cm PaK 36 and mounted with a 45mm gun, which was adequate against most enemy armoured vehicles of the time. With the appearance of more stronger armoured tanksm, the 53-K later was succeeded by the ZiS-3 in the anti-tank role, but stayed in service through the war in small numbers as a light infantry support gun.
In Battlegroup42, the 53-K can be found on map scenarios until mid 1943, such as 4301-Voronezh
