Additional information

Description
The tube is single-use, allowing it to be abandoned on the battlefield, for the sake of less bulk in the event of a rapid change of position after a shot revealing its position to the enemy. Only the aiming and firing devices are reusable.

Usage
In Switzerland
The Swiss Army introduced it to recruit schools in 1994 where it replaced the 58/80 rocket tube . On exercise, it fires the exercise ammunition "UPAT" (abbreviation of the German "  Übung Patrone  " ), without shaped charge and not exploding on impact. Before training recruits in this ammunition, the Swiss Army uses a 7.5 mm GP11 cartridge with tracer bullet as practice ammunition for preparatory practice firing for Panzerfaust 3, before switching to UPAT ammunition. Since the end of the 2010s, it has been gradually replaced by the MATADOR in the infantry and by the NLAWamong the grenadiers.

In Iraq
During the Battle of Mosul , inOctober 2016, the Kurdish peshmergas used Panzerfaust 3 to fight against the Islamic State's vehicle bombs
