That bazooka is sweet. I noticed the the 'Tank Killers' book facing the camera.
Can we put proper photos from the war, or is this just what we've got. 'Cos I have nothing.

This Anti-tank artillery was the most powerful anti-tank gun in the world until 1942. The Germans found it so effective, and it was such a nice prize they even started producing their own ammo for it. It was Russian.

This one was captured and is on display at Nuremburg.

I believe the Germans made several modifications to the original Russian design. The PaK 36 (r) was also used to gun the Marder III (R) Tank Destroyer. Many were sent to N. Africa to aid the 88 in combating the heavily armoured Matilda.

I would like to point out that the FlaK 18 37 8.8cm, although used in AT role, was a classified AA cannon. Just in case anyone tries to say that the Pak36r wasn't the most powerful AT cannon in the world.

Good, I know this is WW2 General but the topic is anti-tank weapons and so a few of my pictures just might be from an earlier war... WW1!! Return to the days of the big cannon anti-tank guns and see how practical they have become since WW2. Then WW2, then finally into Vietnam and modern warfare. Sit down and enjoy the picture comparisons. Ha, Ha, Ha, I am a thread hijacker.

hi D The Faust one shot hollow charge weapon and the Schreck a German copy of the bazooka
heres four for the thread I didn't include the sticky bomb as it was not a fired weapon. only the Mauser dates from the 1914-18 war.
The BOYS was well known for its fantastically vicious kick when fired as was the PIAT.
The Blacker Bombard was effective but it's mount was heavy and made it very hard to transport even with the legs removed.
Ive handelled both a Boys and a PIAT which is a beast of thing to cock and needed both feet on the thing to compress the spring.

I forget what type the two ww1 anti-tank rifles are. Maybe someone can take the picture and find out what they are.

The smaller one at the Picture is a Soviet PKM Machinegun.It fire 7,62x54R
(Rimmed Edge) Ammo.It was put into service in the Red Army in 1964.
