“Armed with a rocket launcher and nerves of steel, this unit specializes in destroying tanks.”

Panzerschreck Bazooka unit is a standard level 2 Bazooka Infantry unlocked in Global Age. Its predecessor is Bazooka and can be upgraded to Veteran Bazooka.

General Information[edit | edit source]

Their high damage against Defending Tanks, Buildings and Walls makes them useful to get fast time elapse in the World War battle. Because they have a short range of fire compare to most of Defensive Buildings and they can't fire through the walls, they are better deployed with other short range troops to protect them.

Historical Description[edit | edit source]

The Panzerschreck was developed as a copy of captured American bazookas. It is unclear whether they were captured in 1942 on the Eastern front, given that Soviet forces had received a shipment of bazookas, or were captured in Tunisia from American forces in February 1943, or both. The American bazookas also spurred the development of the Faustpatrone and successor Panzerfaust anti-tank grenade launchers that each also used a high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead.The Panzerschreck was larger and heavier than its American counterpart - the Panzerschreck had an 88 mm calibre, compared to the 60 mm calibre of the bazooka - which meant that it could penetrate thicker armor, but it also produced more smoke when firing.
