The 4322 Rocket could be used with the Raketenpanzerbuchse 43 or 54. The RPzB 43 and 54 were nicknamed "Ofenrohr"
(Stovepipe) and "Panzerschrek" (Tank Terror) by the Germans. The weapon system had an effective range of 150 meters and
could penetrate all Allied Armor during World War Two.
Both of these rounds were recovered from a lake in Germany and had been underwater for nearly 70 year. They have been
restored to their wartime finish by Quest Masters. Both rockets are inert.
