Fascinating, and a new one on me. One to add to the collection of weird and wonderful WW2 tank-busting weaponry alongside the Kartukov ampulomyot, the LMG rocket-mine, and the 70mm Type 4 rocket launcher.

But isn’t the “mace” referred to here the weapon, rather than the plant? The Russians have a strange fondness for naming their artillery pieces after flowers, and of course the Brits had “Tulip”, but I doubt the Hungarians did it, and on-line dictionaries seem to indicate the hitting-stick.

All the best,

John.
