German AT Rifles in China

Is there any record of German anti tank Rifles being sent to Nationalist China? Germans trained the Chinese KMT army in the 1930s and the Chinese wore German helmets and had 37mm AT guns from Germany.

Dont drag...

...Libertarianism in as an excuse. Its not a suicide pact. Secrets like Ultra need to be kept in war and sacrifices to do it need to be made in any war no matter who is running it. Ultra was an advantage that saved millions and changed defeat into victory. Only a fool would have made any other choice.

BTW Matt, where these things able to be used in the AT role? I understand they were mounted as normal artillery and wondered if they would be any good as AT guns. Were they issued AT rounds, and if so at what range would they engage?

more thoughts

Thanks. What little I know is that the range might differ dependng on what ammunition they used. Am I correct in thinking that they could fire a conventional High Explosive shell or a flak shell for its airburst effects on infantry? If the latter would its range and effects be different than the HE ...
