PzB 39 is an obtainable Tactical Doll in the game.
Panzerbüchse 39 (German: "tank hunting rifle model 39") was a portable, lightweight anti-tank rifle that served the Third Reich during the Second World War. Development of infantry anti-armor weaponry started during the First World War after the first "Tanks" appeared on the battlefield, with the Mauser 1918 T-Gewehr achieving moderate success against the newly invented British armor fighting vehicles. However following the loss of the war and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany halted further development into anti-armor weapons. This was until the Nazi Party came to power in the 1930s, when development of anti-armor weaponry resumed. Dipl.-Ing. (certified engineer) B. Brauer at Gustloff Werke in Suhl designed the PzB38, predecessor of PzB39.
The PzB39 is a falling-block action single shot rifle chambered for the 7.92x94mm Patronen cartridge, able to propel the bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1210 m/s, covering an effective range of 300 metres. Featuring the same designs and operated in the same way as it's predecessor PzB38, the recoiling barrel exposes the breech, ejecting empty shells after each shot. The breech block was then arrested in the rear position, remaining opened for the operator to insert a new cartridge. PzB39's performance was more or less the same as the 38. A few differences would distinguish PzB39 from a PzB38 model, such as increased barrel length, reduced total mass and two cases containing 10 rounds each added near the weapon's breech. Note that these are not feeding magazines, they merely serves to improve practical rate of fires, operation of the rifle is still single shot breech reload.
A few PzB39 units were produced at the beginning of the war and saw action during the invasion of Poland. Following this, a large quantity of PzB39s were produced before the invasion of the USSR, though production would cease on November 1941 with 39,232 units produced. PzB39 served until 1944, finding itself struggling to penetrate the heavier armored Soviet tanks and replaced by cheaper and better alternatives such as the Panzerfaust and the Panzerschreck
The first T-doll drawn by nineo, a tall and slim T-doll well exceeds 160cm of height featuring long straight black hair and red pupils, introduced right before Operation Deep Dive. Presenting herself as a very formally dressed character, rumours claims her outfit is made with the highest quality materials and likely to cost a fortune. She also have several tattoo designs on various part of her body such as on her right thighs and right biceps.
As T-doll with some degree of manly handsomeness, PzB was chosen as part of the Princes' Frontline group, as one of the motorbike riders (The other one is MG AEK-999). The new "Prince Charming" on her "Red Horse" captured the heart of many Commanders with her biker's outfit, red tint aviator shades and the unicorn helmet.
Formally dressed, not quite a formally spoken character, PzB has this easy going personality, she is easy to get along with for most T-dolls. She has the tendency to over look small details in life, with her easy attitude even with the Commander, she may appear to be slightly disrespectful towards her commanding officer in the eye of the other. PzB is very strict when it comes to outfitting herself, she even remind the Commander to be careful with her outfits on several occasions.
The first T-doll to feature the piercing charged shot ability, her skill aims at the further target away from her, the shot penetrates and damages all enemy units along the path.
Possible battle drop reward from E1-4 and E3-3 of Operation Deep Dive. Part of the heavy construction pool as of 23rd of November 2017 and can be obtained from heavy construction.

- Noticing ineffectiveness of PzB39 against the newer generation of Soviet armor, a variant of PzB39 named Granatbüchse Modell 39 (GrB39) was introduced, convertion of PzB39 units into GrB39s began in 1942. GrB39 features a shortened barrel and an affixed Schiessbecher ("firing cup") attachment threaded to the barrel used to launch standard rifle grenades, converting the would-be obsolete anti-armor rifle into a grenadier unit.
