There’s a new article on the SOTCW website, by Grant Parkin. This one is about the WWII Hungarian 44M Buzogányvető anti-tank rocket.03/12/2019 at 11:48 #127529
An interesting read, thanks. I am left wondering just how accurate an unguided rocket would be trying to engage individual AFVs at up to 2000m range? There are plenty of images produced by a Google search BTW.

My guess would be “not very accurate at all”, but I don’t really know.

Yes, but as it says in the note at the start, I couldn’t find copyright information on any of them, so couldn’t use them.03/12/2019 at 22:57 #127557

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,
