Will this be included as a German AT kit, or will it be a pickup kit due to it's rarity?

pickup, barely any were made and only a few photos exist that show them discarded in fighting around Berlin.

Makes sense. I'm curious, are any working versions of these still in existence?

Definitely not, as it is not even an AT weapon.

Yeah, most likely so since it wasn't used until near the end of the war.

I'm not sure, since it was a rare weapon probably nowhere else.

It was only used right at the end of the war. The only completely documented use is by a testing unit in Saarbr├╝cken, but there is this photo:


There is at least one discarded Luftfaust in the rubble there, in Berlin, so they were used in that area.

Yeah, I've seen that photo before. It would be awesome to shoot one in real life if any of them still exist! :)

This looks amazing! I'd love to see a video of it in action, as I cannot even find a video of the real one being used.

Took me ages to remember where I'd seen this before when I found it in Sniper Elite 4 - Deathstorm Part 2: Infiltration ...

I like how they didn't model the rockets as properly loaded.
