What's the German's view? They are surrounded by heavily armed hostile nations that can field thousands if tanks, while they have no tanks and their AT weapons rea limited both in quality and quantity. Militarily they need something good enough ASAP but their is also the political situation to consider.

Germany is in negotiations with the Entente powers(Locarno). It is probably better to introduce an Ersatz-tank after this has been concluded.

Again, from the ex-sailor here, didn't Germany have an anti-tank rifle late in W.W.1? Would this be effective against tanks in the 1920 and 1930 time frame? I don't know if muzzle brakes were invented yet, but some recoil could be absorbed via a padded shoulder stock and monopod at an angle toward the user under the shoulder stock. Was H.E.A.T. knowledge available in this time frame?

Yes, Germany had one but all had to be handed over to the Entente.

Would this type of naval artillery have a place as a tank and/or anti-tank gun?

It was used a a AT gun in fixed defenses. Capable enough against 1939's armour

The Reichswehr prefers a small and a large half track and would like to get the small one done first. Hm, I bet we could at least put an MG18 into it anyway.

A bit of half track news from Germany.

 

The Germans are looking at three prototypes. Daimler – Benz offers a modified lorry, Opel's half track is designed as one from the ground up and Hanomag has put the idea on its head. They are offering a fully tracked chassis with track steering that has a pair of wheels at the front.
