Heroes & Generals WWII is deploying 3 new weapons of destruction for all infantry soldiers. Tanks Beware!
The German Granatbüchse 39 [Gr B 39]
The Gr B 39 is a Pz B 39 converted to take the standard rifle attachment grenade launcher (Schiessbecher).
It launches a shaped charge warhead that is fired by a wooden bullet. This allows the weapon to engage harder targets than the original bullet launching platform. Most PzB-39 rifles in service have been subject to these modifications, and the resulting Gr B 39 guns are able to be very effective in combat.
The US M18 Recoilless Rifle
The M18 recoilless rifle is a 57 mm shoulder fired anti-tank recoilless rifle. As a recoilless rifle it is capable of firing artillery-type shells at reduced velocities (~365m/s) but with greater accuracy than anti-tank weapons that use unguided rockets, and almost entirely without recoil. The M18 Recoilless Rifle can penetrate up to 76mm of armor at a 90 degree angle.
The Soviet PTRS-41
The PTRS-41 or Simonov anti-tank rifle is the semi-automatic analog of the PTRD-41 anti-tank rifle. The gas-operated PTRS fires a 14.5 mm armour-piercing bullet with a muzzle velocity of 1013 m/s and devastating ballistics. It can penetrate an armour plate up to 40 mm thick at a distance of 100 meters.
