Dynamit Nobel Defence (DND) appreciates this evidence that the German Armed Forces continue to rely on the combat-proven Panzerfaust 3 as part of their individual anti-tank defence concept.

The Panzerfaust 3 (lit. "armor fist" or "tank fist") is a modern semi-disposable recoilless anti-tank weapon, which was developed between 1978 and 1985 and first entered service with the Bundeswehr in 1987 (although they did not officially adopt it until 1992). It was first ordered in 1973 to provide West German infantry with an effective weapon against contemporary Soviet armor, thereby replacing West Germany's aging PzF 44 Light Lanze launchers and the heavy Carl Gustaf 84 mm anti-tank recoilless rifle manufactured in Sweden. The Panzerfaust 3 is operated by at least 11 countries and has seen combat in Afghanistan and Ukraine.

The iconic Panzerfaust 3 is also suitable for engaging lightly armored targets and fortified positions. On the market for more than 30 years, it has undergone continuous development over time. The latest version, the Panzerfaust 3-IT (Improved Tandem), features a tandem warhead that is particularly suitable for engaging combat vehicles protected with reactive protection.
