    Default German Late War Petrol Bomb

    Hello everyone. I have seen this item for sale in a merchant's website with the following description:
    ''This is a late war last ditch weapon used to destroy tanks and vehicles. It's a glass petrol bomb that was filled with flammable liquid, the bottom has 2 chemical vials which were to be crushed, and the chemicals would cause a flame reaction and the petrol bomb would be thrown at a hard service to destroy a tank or vehicle''
    Has anyone seen one like this. Personally i have never seen such an item on any book.

    Hi spotter and thanks for the info. I have read the link and it refers only to the Hungarian army. The website which sells this item sells only German militaria. If you know, was this petrol bomb used by the Wehrmacht or only by Hungarian army?
    Coz if it's the latter then the merchant is lying.

    I have had a reply from my friend,,he says it is possible the Hungarian grenade was used by the germans,,but they also would have used many other captured non german made weapons .eg captured no36 mills bombs etc
