    Here’s another ordnance post for today. The large Anti tank rifle grenade used by German during WW2

    Supplementing the earlier AP round (GewehrPanzergranate 30) they developed for the Schiessbecher attachment. This round would of been pretty effective against light vehicles, half tracks and light tanks. It’s a Hollow charge round so it’s armour penetration would not be effected by its velocity.

    These rifle grenades were issued with a wooden projectile rifle round attached to the body however these rounds as far as I am aware are very rare as they differ from wood projectile training rounds with different propellant loadings.

    This is a good example. Unfortunately some damage around the threading but it can still screw in very nicely. The base can also be screwed to reveal some internal mechanisms including a striker.

    Thanks for having a look
    John

    Hahah didn’t expect my old thread to be revived like this! Very cool pouch mate

    Now if anyone had one of those special 7.92 rounds designed only for rifle grenades that would be super cool!
