The M1 57mm Anti-Tank Gun was adapted by the US Army during World War II, after it became clear that the 37mm Anti-Tank was no longer effective against the increasingly well-armored German tanks. The design of this weapon is directly copied from the British 6-pounder light field gun, which was being produced in the USA for the Lend-Lease program. The gun was reclassified the M1 57 mm Anti-Tank gun and fitted with a longer barrel to acheive a higher muzzle velocity, essential for effective armor penetration. The M1 was issued to US Army anti-tank regiments and airborne units in Europe as well as the Pacific. While it still could not penetrate the frontal armor of Germany's Tiger and Panther tanks, it's small size made it easy to conceal and an effective ambush and flanking weapon. The M1 57mm Anti-Tank Gun was used by US forces into the Korean War.
