The Gewehrgranatengerät ("rifle grenade device"), also known as Schiessbecher ("shooting cup," note that it is spelled with an "ie" instead of "ei", which means something much more unfortunate), was a WWII-era German rifle grenade launcher. It had a rifled barrel that could be attached to the muzzle of Karabiner 98k, FG 42, Sturmgewehr 44 and several other German rifles. The launcher fired 30mm grenades with 250mm length.

  • Gewehr-Panzergranate: Shaped charge anti-armor
  • Gross Gewehr-Panzergranate: Improved shaped charge anti-armor
  • Gross Panzergranate 46 & 61: High-powered shaped charge anti-armor
