    Thank you for this correction, and the additional information. The black-powder explains the large smoke signature of the Panzerfaust.

    The Panzerschreck was also very smokey, and did fire a rocket. It was dubbed the 'stove pipe' by the troops, because it looked like one even before the smoke.


    Here's a gif of a PIAT I put together from a video:

    I read in an Australian site that it was used in the first battle of El alamein, I suppose that was the place were the 6 kills happen.

    Very good one.

    Pray tell me, if these 'glass' grenades were issued alot, surely under field conditions many of them would be broken. And carrying a willie petter glass grenade would scare me!

    The few references I have, including Purnell's series, say that many were issued as "troop trials" weapons, but note little if any operational employment.
    This would seem to align with the prevalent opinion that any operational usage was of an extremely limited and unofficial nature.
    Personally, I'd regard that as the most likely, it being that even the logistics of transporting such exotic items would essentially be counterproductive in terms of the amount of trained personnel and specialised packaging it would require. The logistics factor alone would argue against any but the most clandestine usage of exotic weapons, and as such, would again align with prevalent opinion as to limited employment.

    Hello,
    the RKKA used ampulets.





    This is a quotation from an other forum...

    "Sorry for a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes, this is an article from one of the russian sites, I just used on-line translator(don't have time at the moment to translate it more accuratley), hope it is clear enough to understand the general meaning.

    Ampulomety Main > Used for setting fire facilities > Originally used for stationary fire weapons by RKKA, those weapons were so-called «ampulomets», often used for a fight against manpower, destroying or blinding the tanks, armoured cars and cars of the opponent, burning out the infantry from shelters and fixed structures.

    Ampulomet consisted of barrel with ammo-store, breech-block-bolt, shooting adaptation, aiming adaptations and gun-carriage with a fork. A barrel consisted of a pipe, made from sheet of 2-мм iron. Aiming adaptations included beauty-spot and folding bar of breech-sight. A barrel was fastened with pins in the fork of gun-carriage - tripod, wooden log or frame on ski. A tin ampoule served as a shell AZH-2 or with 1 l mix up a glass ball "KC", popped the hunting blank of 12th caliber. Mass of ampulometa made 10 kg, gun-carriage are from 5 to 18 kg, aiming distance of firing is 100-120 m, maximal are 240-250 m basic and to 400 m with an additional charge, a calculation is 3 men, rapidity of fire - 6-8 shot/min.


    Loading was made by two men - the first one numbered calculations, inserted from a treasury a vyshibnoy cartridge, the second one inserted in a barrel from muzzle part an ampoule. Ampulomety were very simple and cheap "flame-thrower mortars", the special ampulometnye platoons were armed with them - Training regulations of infantry 1942 mention ampulomet as a regular fire weapon of infantry. In the fight of ampulomet often served as the kernel of group of destroyers of tanks.

    Use of it in a defensive operations on the whole justified itself, but the attempts of using ampulemeti in offensive resulted in the severe losses of calculations from small distance of firing. They were utillized by the assault groups in city fights - in particular, in Stalingrad. At the end of 1942 ampulomety were taken off from production and the list of officially used weapons in the Red Army.
    In 45 years principle of percussion "cap ognemetaniya" will be incarnated at a new level in the soviet infantry flame-thrower of RPO Bumble-bee . Among the "ancestors" of RPO it is possible to mention the German easy non-permanent recoilless flame-thrower of "Einstossflammenwerfer 44", "Pantserfaust", but throwing out in place of grenade the stream of burning liquid on distance to 27 м.Unlike ampulomets, this flame-thrower remained experimental.
