When fully assembled the projectile was 144 cm long . The total wl,iqlil varied around 761 Ib (345 kg) . Each rocket was stencilled with its w oi(J111 correct to the nearest 12 Ib (5-436 kg) as this had to be taken into acc(lI"ll when computing ranges. Special range tables were compiled for this purpo,;o. The temperature of the propellant also had to be allowed for, and themJ() meters were issued for this purpose. Extracts from the compiled rang e tnl>l,, :; show the effect of the propellant temperature on the rocket performance .

During World War 2 many new and novel approaches were made into this age-old problem and among these was the use of a delayed action rocket to fire just as the shell's initial velocity was beginning to die away. This principle went into service in the form of the 28 cm Raketen­ granate 4331 (R Gr 4331) which was fired from the 28 cm K5 (E) railway gun. It increased the gun's not inconsiderable range of 67,800 yards to 93,100 yards-a 37% improvement. The 28 cm R Gr 4331 was a pre-rifled projectile weighing 545% lb.

Previous hollow-charge heads dissipated their energy on striking the plates so that a second weapon was needed to penetrate the armour. The longer nose and design of the Panzer­ faust 150 bomb overcame this by concentrating the explosive jet and making it more effective. Other changes on the Panzerfaust 150 were increased propellant charges (two) to give a muzzle velocity of 82 metres/second and thus increased range. Another improvement was the addition of an optional fragmentation 58 The early 30 m models were not well received at first by the troops in the field.
