Developed from a flare pistol this German anti-tank weapon was used in WWII and intended to fire a small shaped warhead to defeat the armor on tanks.

However the warheads were too small to be effective and the pistols were not accurate at any range.

It may be said that this was one of the strangest and ineffective anti-tank weapons ever made.

Germany - 2.7cm Kampfpistole  Because it was originally supposed to be a flare pistol the stock was updated to avoid injury to the user from the recoil when firing the heavier anti-tank grenades.
