Looks like photos from a training film that show loading, firing procedure and operation of the Panzerfaust 30 Klein (small). The weapon entered service in 1943, range was 30m or (33yd) and could penetrate 140mm (5.5in) of armor, it was a disposable launch anti-tank weapon. After the weapon is fired, small fins extend stabilizing the rocket in flight.The trainee operator is a Luftwaffe Lance-Corporal.
