    More specifically, a box for 20 Grosse Gewehr Panzergranaten or large rifle anti-tank grenades. The grenades were fired from a 3 cm discharger (Shiessbecher) attached to a rifle. They had a fuze and booster with a range of 100 yards. Photo shows one in use and a schematic. NH

    P.S. Credit to Lonesentry.com for schematic.

    I didn't know of these grenades to use against tanks ! Wonder how good they were. I guess the fausts and shrecks took over as these prob only worked against soft skin or thin armour? Thanks to above for I D ing the box by the way !

    Against tanks these grenades were useless but against light armour, MG positions etc pretty good.
