The Panzersherk came about after the German’s captured Bazookas in both North Africa and on the eastern Front. Realizing the potential of a hand held rocket firing anti-tank weapon, the German set about developing their own. The result was Raketenpanzerbüchse 54, better known as the Panzersherk. Like the Bazooka the Panzersherk fires HEAT (high explosive Anti-tank) Rocket with an effective range of 150m.
The Panzersherk made its combat debut in 1943 and was able to tackle almost all the armour that the German might encounter. It was not without its flaws, because of it bigger calibre that the bazooka, it was heavier and had a very large back-blast that gave away the users position. Just around 300,000 panzersherks were produced compared to just short of 7 million panzerfausts.
The Panzersherk first appears in game in tier 3. The Panzersherk can kill all the allied armour in game when used correctly. Be aware that you cannot sprint with the weapon loaded so it is better to get yourself in position before loading. Also when loaded you can’t switch to your side arm to defend yourself from any enemy infantry you may encounter.
It is easy to aim and can be fired from the standing and crouched position, be aware that the sherk is quite loud and once fired you will have given away your position.
