    So I was watching a youtube video, and well... I came across this: WW2-Wermacht/Panzershrek Video - YouTube
    So what is the name of the first AT gun? And if you know any information, if you could share it, thanks :D

    I think it's either a
    2.8cm Panzerbusche 41 taper-bore gun
    or a
    8.8cm Racketenwerfer 43 (Puppchen) that used the same carriage

    The thick barrel makes me think the second but there was vey little smoke/backblast when it fired, still the "staged" look of the while affair makes me think it possibly wasn't a live rocket. I vote for Puppchen.
