Default Pzhndgranate 41

In the German OOB this is listed as a weapon slot 232. Could someone tell me what it is please as I can find nothing about it either on the web or in any book I have?

You couldn't have looked very hard

There is some debate about it but it's been in our OOB's since near the beginning and represents a moderate hand delivered AT munition

The first special AT hand grenade was the Panzerhandgranate 41. It weighed 2kg and was effective against armor of up to 30mm thickness. 504,600 were produced in early 1943. Further developments of AT handgrenades utilising shaped charges had trouble stabilizing the flight which was necessary for the shaped charge to work (this lead to the development of the Panzerwurfmine).
