DRAGON 1:6 SCALE WW2 GERMAN RPZB 54 ANTITANK ROCKET LAUNCHER
Commonly called the Panzerschreck ("tank terror"), the Raketenpanzerbƭchse (or RPzB) was a highly effective antitank weapon. While not produced in the same numbers (289,151 were eventually manufactured by the end of WWII) as the disposable Panzerfaust, it had the advantage of being reusable and had a greater range of 150m. The Panzerschreck was actually copied from the American M1A1 bazooka, and offered far better penetration with its 88mm caliber. The RPzB54 succeeded the original RPzB43 in October 1943, and is easily identified by its blast shield that protected the operator. One disadvantage of the Panzerschreck was the amount of smoke it produced, which led to its nickname "stove pipe"!
