Weaponology – “Bazooka / Panzerschreck / Panzerfaust”

Portable Anti Tank Weapon

By World War II it was widely understood that if an infantrymen wanted to take out a tank he needed a portable weapon with a hollow charged warhead. Each side boasted their own models like the bazooka or the panzerschreck all deadly to armor. By the middle of World War II the Germans face a problem, Allied tanks are closing in on all fronts and they can’t make enough tanks of their own. They need a cheap portable one shot anti-tank weapon that every infantrymen can carry.
