    The hedgerow fighting placed a premium on light weapons that could be readily moved. One unusual type of German anti-tank weapon encountered In the Normandy fighting was the 88mm Raketenwerfer 43 Puppchen which fired an 88mm rocket to a range of about 700 meters. Weighing about 325 pounds, it fell between the man-portable panzershreck rocket launcher and more conventional anti-tank guns.
