Soldiers test fire the Panzerfaust against a combat vehicle to measure the impact at short range in 1945. The Panzerfaust (lit. "armor fist" or "tank fist", plural: Panzerfäuste) was a cheap, single shot, recoilless German anti-tank weapon of World War II. It consisted of a small, disposable preloaded launch tube firing a high explosive anti-tank warhead, and was operated by a single soldier. The Panzerfaust was in service from 1943 until the end of the war. Learn more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerfaust
