The Sturmpistole, alternatively known as the Kampfpistole (German: Assault/Combat Pistol), was a handheld anti-tank grenade launcher developed by Nazi Germany during World War II. The weapon used Flare Gun components, modified with a shoulder stock and provision to use shaped-charge anti-tank grenades. The weapon did not see mass production, and its intended niche was filled mid war by the Panzerschreck and Panzerfaust series of launchers.
In Battlefield V, two variants of the Sturmpistole are available to the Support kit - the AT Grenade Pistol and the Kampfpistole.
