does anyone know how much a panzerfaust3 rocket is? iirc from my time in the bundeswehr, it was said to be 12.000,-- DM...
I can again quote Dynamit Nobel:
Price Range. In equivalent 2004 United States dollars, the Panzerfaust 3 launcher has a unit price of US$9,994 for quantity buys, including the firing mechanism and base level sight. The unit price of the IT 600 version fitted with the Simrad Optronics computerized sight has a unit price of US$11,108. In quantity buys, the basic High Explosive Anti-Tank munition has a unit price of US$297; the Bunkerfaust munition has a unit price of US$202.
ok, so the figures i had was most probably only the launcher. 300,-- $ sounds actually kinda cheap, i'm surprised.
Nope. The German military has no CSAR capabilities whatsoever.
The LTG61 runs a rather improvised program for aerial casualty recovery, that's right. It's nowhere near a true CSAR component, though.
