this is copy of a weapon that was used in ww2 by the germans. alot of people think that the bazooka was a copy of the panzer shridk but the panzer shriek was a copy of the bazooka. the panzer shriek was an anti-tank weapon that was used more than once unlike the panzer fraust.
Quoting Blake Klaphake
The bazooka was actually based off captured Panzerschrecks. Good recreation though
uh ya no. the bazooka was orginally made back in 1918 by a dude named Dr. Robert H. Goddard. he was working on a rocket propulsion project when he relized that it could be used as a usefull anti-tank weapon. he demonstrated to the United States Army on november 6, 1918. the only problem was that it was hard to fire so production was stopped. in 1942 another guy named Leslie Skinner recieved a m10 grenade that could stop german tanks. as they were walking to the test area they went by a scrape pile and leslie spied an old tube. he place the tube on a soldiers shoulder and fired the rocket and it worked like a charm. thus the bazooka was created. when it was used in battle it worked so well that the germans decided to copy it. so yes the panzer shreck is a copy of the bazooka.
thank you history class is dismissed
nice but the wheel at the back end wasnt nessesary. according to wikipedia the panzerschreck was a result af a takeover of an american base in africa, in which several bazookas where found and backwards engineered
