The Panzerschreck is a German anti-tank rocket launcher.

DescriptionEdit

Seeing the great potential in the American M1 Bazooka captured in North Africa, Germany decided to develop their version of the anti-tank rocket launcher. The first model was the Raketenpanzerbüchse 43 (RPzB 43), which required the user to wear a protective suit and gas mask to protect them from backblast when the weapon was fired. This was then succeeded by the RPzB, which was fitted with a blastshield to remedy the problem. Its reputation in combat was suiting to its popular nickname Panzerschreck, or "tank terror" in German.

The Panzerschreck serves as the primary weapon for the German and Hungarian anti-tank class from 1944 onwards.
