In past nearly every explosive device was called time to time "torpedo". Need more info to recognize the weapon. Maybe a magnetic-HEAT charge, or Panzerfaust... just a guess.

Possibly the muzzle-loading 'stick bomb' demolition projectile for the 37mm PAK?

Surely the widely used "bangalore" style obstacle clearing torpedo could nobble a tank, they had pretty hefty HE charges!??!!?

:) What do you think?

Bangalore Torpedo, M1A1


The original Bangalore torpedo was designed in 1912 by Captain McClintock, an engineer who worked for Bengal, Bombay and Madras Sappers and Miners. Developed in Bangalore, India, the original design was not intended for warfare, but to clear pre-existing barbed-wire obstacles leftover from the Boer War and Russo-Japanese War.

The World War II era M1A1 Bangalore Torpedo was a pipe-shaped Class V anti-personnel mine-clearing charge capable of blasting a ten- to 20-foot wide path through a minefield or section of barbed wire. Short connecting sleeves were used to attach the threaded ends of two or more tubes in order to create a longer explosive device. A rounded nose sleeve was placed on the leading end of a tube in order to push the tube through obstacles. The torpedo was set off by placing a blasting cap in the recessed end cap well and igniting it with a time-delayed (electric or non-electric) fuse.
