The 30 cm Raketenwerfer 56 (30 cm RWf 56) was a six barreled
multiple rocket launcher mounted on the carriage of the 5
cm PaK 38
anti-tank gun. And fired a 30 cm Wurfkörper
42 Spreng missile that was spin stabilised electrically fired.
The crews of these weapons could only fire once because smoke
trails marked the firing location, making it relatively easy
for the enemy to shoot back. Counter-battery fire was thus
a serious issue for rocket units
