Photo Collection – German Artillery Rockets : Part 10 – Panzerschreck RPzB 43

.

Part ten, and this was supposed to be the second of four parts covering the infantryman used versions in this series of photos collections covering the various German field artillery rockets. But if you’ve read through from Part One you’ll realise that this went from being a six part to an eight part, to a ten part, to a twelve part so it should come as no surprise that it’s now a fourteen part as I decided I really couldn’t leave out the Panzerfaust and I just had too many photos of both the Panzerschreck and Panzerfaust so each is in two parts.

So this is Part One of the Panzerschreck, being Part Two of the Infantry level Rockets which in itself is Part Ten of the overall photo series. With me so far ? This one covers the Raketen Panzerbusche RPzB 43, the early type Panzerschreck without the shield, though I have included half a dozen photos of it with various improvised shields. Part Two of the Panzerschreck ( Part Eleven overall ) will cover the Raketen Panzerbusche RPzB 54 and 54/1.

After that there’s a small collection of the vehicle mounted Panzerschrecks and we finish off with two parts for the Panzerfaust, one covering the 30 Klein and 30, the other the 60. 100 and 150. And really that’s it as they’re all sorted out now, so fourteen parts will be the final tally. Honest.

Photo Collection – German Artillery Rockets : Part 9 – Raketenwerfer 43 Puppchen

.

Part nine, and the first of four parts covering the infantryman used versions in this series of photos collections covering the various German field artillery rockets. The first four parts covered the Nebelwerfers and Wurfrahmen in ground use while parts five to eight were broken down into various vehicle mounted rockets covering the Sd.Kfz.251 mounted Schwerer Wurfrahmen 40, probably better known as the “Stuka Zu Fuss”, the  Panzerwerfer 42 auf Maultier Sd.Kfz.4/1, the 8cm Reihenwerfer auf SPW Somua S303(f) and the 8cm Raketen Vielfachwerfer auf Fahrgestell Zgkw S303(f), and an assortment of left overs dealing with all other mobile rocket versions.

Originally I thought I’d cover the infantry used ones in two parts but once I started sorting them I realised there were too many photos and they could be further broken down so it’s now four parts. This part covers the Raketenwerfer 43 Puppchen and the other three will cover the Raketenpanzerbüchse ( Panzerschreck ) and Panzerfaust. I also found that I had quite a few photos of the Leichtgeschutz 7.5cm LG40, 10.5cm LG40 and 10.5cm LG42 I’ll do those as a separate photo collection once I’m done here ( not really rockets but interesting enough to warrant their own collection ).

Photo Collection – German Artillery Rockets : Part 8 – Assorted Vehicle Mounted Rockets

.

Part eight, and the last of four parts covering the mobile versions in this series of photos collections covering the various German field artillery rockets. The first four parts covered the Nebelwerfers and Wurfrahmen in ground use while parts five to eight were broken down into various vehicle mounted rockets with parts five to seven covering the Sd.Kfz.251 mounted Schwerer Wurfrahmen 40, probably better known as the “Stuka Zu Fuss”, the  Panzerwerfer 42 auf Maultier Sd.Kfz.4/1, and the 8cm Reihenwerfer auf SPW Somua S303(f) ( the one with the tubes ) and the 8cm Raketen Vielfachwerfer auf Fahrgestell Zgkw S303(f) ( the one with the rails ). 

This part covers a random variety of left overs dealing with all other mobile rocket versions including the Hotchkiss H35, Renault UE, Raketenwerfer auf Fahrgestell Pz.Kpfw.IV and Pz.Kpfw.I prototypes, a few odd Panzerwerfer 42 mounts on a trailer, a truck and a Somua, the Panzerwerfer 42 SWS ( the interior shot is also the SWS ), Pz.38(t), a few U-Boat mounts, the 8 cm Raketen-Vielfachwerfer auf Selbstfahrlafette Sd.Kfz. 4 Maultier, a beute M3 Half-Track, and a stray Sd.Kfz.251 shot that got overlooked when I did part five.

The last two parts in this series will cover on the Racketenwerfer 43 Puppchen and the Raketenpanzerbüchse ( Panzerschreck ) and as I found that I had quite a few photos of the Leichtgeschutz 7.5cm LG40, 10.5cm LG40 and 10.5cm LG42 I’ll do those as a separate photo collection once I’m done here ( not really rockets but interesting enough to warrant their own collection ).
