WW2 Original German Panzerfaust 60 found on Hells Highway Operation Market Garden.
Vigo Militaria and Collectables are pleased to offer this battlefield found original WW2 German Panzerfaust 60 from the battle of Market Garden.
We understand that it was recovered in Holland along the Hell’s Highway route, it has been cleaned and the tube is in solid condition, the trigger and sight is missing. The war head is removable, it is cracked but still fairly solid. See pictures.
"Hell's Highway" was the nickname given to a stretch of road between Joe's Bridge over the Meuse-Scheldt canal to Arnhem.
It was a very exposed two-lane road that became famous for its heavy fighting and heroism.
Germany developed the Panzerfaust during World War II to counter improving Soviet tank technology.
The weapon proved lethal to Allied armour, particularly in urban combat.
As the number and quality of Soviet armoured vehicles increased, Nazi Germany decided it would take more than other tanks and antitank guns to counter them. It needed a tank-killer any infantryman could use. And so the Panzerfaust was born.
All inert Ordnance sold by Vigo Militaria and Collectables are Free From Explosives (FFE).
