Panzerfaust

The Panzerfaust series were a line of recoilless anti-tank weapons produced by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. While often mistaken for rocket launchers, they were actually recoilless guns, using a powder charge in a preloaded tube to fire an unpowered shaped-charge warhead in a similar manner to a rifle grenade.

The correct, almost never seen arming procedure for a Panzerfaust is to pull the safety pin, lift the rear leaf sight and then push the T-bar safety forward to allow the firing lever to be operated. In addition, a Panzerfaust in storage would usually have the fuze and booster charge removed, necessitating the warhead be removed from the launcher and the fuze and booster inserted into a hollow tube at the base.
