Stats / Data
Panzerbüchse 39 (German for "tank hunting rifle model 39") is 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. Certified engineer B. Brauer of Gustloff Werke 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 the spent shell 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 Operation Barbarossa, though production would cease on November 1941 with a total of 39,232 units produced. PzB39 were given to Panzergrenadiers of various German Panzer divisions, it served until 1944. Eventually 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 Deep Dive. PzB presenting herself as a very formally dressed character, rumours has it that her outfit is made with the highest quality materials and likely cost a fortune. She also has 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-999AEK-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.
Though costume Burst Rider's character sprite does have an incorrectly placed ammo box, PzB39 does not have a mounting position for the ammo boxes on the front of the weapon, instead it should be located towards the rear of the weapon like it how it is shown on the costume's damage art.

- Noticing ineffectiveness of PzB39 against the newer generation of Soviet armor, a variant of PzB39 named Granatbüchse Modell 39 (GrB39) was introduced, conversion 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.
- Arguable the main competitor of PzB39 was the Soviet RF PTRDPTRD and the later PTRS rifles, even with a higher calibre the Soviet 14.5mm rifles also found itself being obsolete against most tanks, though produced PTRD/S did not undergo retrofitting process like PzB39 did.
