Nearly 50 years reading and looking at WWII photos and I had never heard of this until I stumbled upon it today on Pinterest.


" It was regarded as one of the most effective anti-tank platforms used in WWII. " I bet, it looks like a damn battleship shell.

Nice catch! Never heard of it either.
Went and researched it a little and looked for some more pics.
This is what I came up with.
Article said it had a range of 1200m. I don't understand what kind of guidance system it had, but as is it doesn't look liked it could hit anything over 100m out.
How does that launcher make it spin/stabilize, if it did?

Presumably it has fins similar to an RPG so that it spin stabilizes itself? That warhead, Jesus LOL
