Could anybody help with photo of Dr. Heinrich Langweiler (he was leader of team designed Panzerfaust)?

Thank you in advance!

Yuri,

He is also the guy who developed the concept that was the basis for the German WW II 9mm “Rocket” cartridges. Any info on him related to the Langweiler Impulse Principle or his work with small caliber ammunition would be appreciated.

Cheers, Lew

I know only what he was almost captured by Russian forces but because of accident in his lab or suicide he died. His archive was evacuated to Russian (and later was lost)…

He did some interesting work on hyper-velocity small arms, and not so small arms, and published a paper in about 1939 on his Impulse Propulsion Principle, which the British translated to English in 1945 or 1946, but I have not been able to find either the English or German version!!!
