The Hafthohlladung, also known as the Panzerknacker ('armour breaker') was a shaped charge anti-tank grenade used by the Germans. It had three pairs of magnets around its base which enabled the infantryman using the device to place it directly onto the enemy tank before arming it by pulling the ignitor at the rear of the mine. This meant that the slope of the armour had a negligible effect on the efficacy of the shaped charge, but it also made the action of placing the charge rather suicidal, as the infantryman would be very vulnerable to enemy fire. The charge itself was very effective against armour, being able to penetrate around 140mm of armour.
