Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRF70400 German Heer Grenadier w/ 8.8cm Puppchen Anti-Tank Gun, Eastern Front, 1943 - "Wolfgang Knaf" (1:6 Scale) "The German soldier is to be tough as leather, fleet as a greyhound, and hard as Krupp steel."
- Adolf Hitler discussing the creation of the new German soldat

The Puppchen (German: Dolly) was the popular name for the Raketen-Panzerbuchse 43 ('rocket tank rifle', abbreviated to RPzB), an 88 mm calibre reusable anti-tank rocket launcher developed by the Germans in World War II.

It was given to the infantry to bolster their anti-tank capability. The weapon was fired from a small two-wheeled gun carriage which fired a rocket-propelled, fin-stabilized grenade with a shaped charge warhead. It was made in much smaller numbers than either the "Panzerschreck" , which was based on the American Bazooka or the Panzerfaust, which was a disposable recoilless rifle firing an anti-tank grenade. This is partly due to the fact that it was realized that a simple hollow tube with an ignition device was all that was needed to launch the 88mm rocket, rather then an elaborate miniature artillery piece with carriage and breech.

Pictured here is a German Heer Grenadier ("Wolfgang Knaf") equipped with an 8.8cm Raketenwerfer 43 (Puppchen) anti-tank gun, then serving with Grenadier Regiment 253, which was deployed to the Central Sector of the Eastern Front in 1943. Sold Out!
