  Panzerfaust - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "Panzerfaust 30" was the original version, first delivered in August, 1943.
A Panzerfaust 150 was deployed in limited numbers near the end of the war, and was a greatly modified design.
It had the same amount of propellant as the Panzerfaust 100 but a redesigned warhead and two stage propellant ignition gave it a higher velocity of 85 meters per second and the increased armor penetration.
