        Not exactly. IIRC, the Germans captured a US bazooka, and
reverse-engineered their own bazooka called a Panzershreck (Tank Terror).
The Panzerfaust (Tank Fist) was a latter development, a recoiless rifle with
a very big shaped charged warhead.

        A one shot, very powerful weapon. The Strumfaust probably pack much
more explosive firepower (and it's probably a shaped charge as well) that
would have been very difficult to build into a reloadable weapon.
