The Panzerfaust 3 looks like a futuristic, or at least modern, thing.
But it was designed and developed by Dynamit Nobel AG in the late 1970s into the mid-1980s, and came into service in 1992.
If you’ve seen the Memes you know what it does. It fausts Panzers!
There is also a Bunkerfaust version. You got to love the name! Of course, it fausts Bunkers.
These pictures come from The Panzergrenadierbataillon 401, as they exercise in the woods.
I am sure you spot their standard-issue Heckler & Koch G36s as well.
The standard infantry anti-tank weapon is the Panzerfaust 3.

The length is 950 mm (3 ft 1 in), and the weight is roughly 13 kilograms (28 lb 7 oz), so not the ideal thing to carry. But it’s a nice thing for the squad to have when there are enemy tanks around.
