I was over in Washington DC last weekend and went to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. I saw that they had a panzershreck in one of the display cabinets so I took a picture of it.

Not really important but hey, I thought it might help pass the time before ToI ...

[It's an awesome museum if you ever get the chance to see it.]

RFC.

How disappointing. I went to the link fully expecting to see a big green ogre in a German tank. But's just some kind of gun! laugh

They have opened a second National Air and Space museum out near Dullas International Airport and moved a lot of the larger stuff out there - the SR-71 Blackbird, the Enola Gay, the Space Shuttle, a Concorde (yep its housed in a BIG hangar - or two). That's where I found the panzershreck. The one in the center of DC still has masses of interesting stuff such as the actual Gemini, Mercury and Apollo command modules, an real Appolo moon lander, lots of rockets, skylab, WWII fighters, WWI fighters, Space Ship 1, etc, etc).

I was reading on Wikipedia that the first version of the panzerschreck did not have the blast shield and so the gunner had to wear a full-body blast-suit and full-face gas mask. Crikey!
