From the Vault: German anti-tank training videos

Those interested in World War II Eastern Front tank fighting will find these clips from German anti-tank training films worth watching.

The first video is a short one showing various German panzerschreck and panzerfaust being used.

The next video is a longer one, titled “Manner gegen Panzer” (men against tanks) from 1943.

The final clip is one from earlier in the war, featuring a KV-2 heavy tank! It illustrates a number of anti-tank tactics, including some rather dubious practices such as beating on the barrel of the hull machine gun with a metal rod.
