Commonly called the Panzerschreck (“tank terror”), the Raketenpanzerbüchse (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”!

Dragon’s burgeoning and popular 1/6 scale range of weapon accessories now includes a German RPzB54. The Panzerschreck is accurately proportioned and detailed, and includes fine touches such as a realistic sling. For added versatility, the kit also includes an ammunition case with realistic wood-grain pattern. There are also detailed RPzBGr 4322 rockets that allow realistic vignettes to be created with relevant figures. With a U.S. bazooka set already available (Item No. 75008 includes an M1 and M9 bazooka), this latest arrival allows collectors to model weapons from both sides of the conflict.
