1943 German Panzerschreck (Raketenpanzerbüchse 54 – 88 mm reusable anti-tank rocket launcher)- Replica

Panzerschreck was the popular name for the Raketenpanzerbüchse 54 (“Rocket Anti-armor Rifle Model 54”, abbreviated to RPzB 54), an 88 mm reusable anti-tank rocket launcher developed by Germany in World War II.

The Panzerschreck was designed as a lightweight infantry anti-tank weapon and was an enlarged copy of the American bazooka. The weapon was shoulder-launched and fired a fin-stabilized rocket with a shaped-charge warhead.

This example from our collection is finished in the standard Ordinance colour yellow/brown of 1943. The Panzerschreck is fitted with the Blast Shield to protect the firer from the rocket back wash.
