What is a Nahverteidigungswaffe ?

Recommended Posts

Launcher in the roof of some late war German AFV's. It could fire a 92 mm smoke grenade or be used to launch 26 mm HE grenades. The latter were timed to explode in the air close to the tank. It could be rotated 360 degrees but was fixed in elevation.

Nah = close

Verteidigung = defence

waffe = weapon
