Stove Pipe look-alike

The Stovepipe

Anti-barrel rockets
, nicknamed Stovepipes, were a kind of rocket developed during the Second Great War by the Huntsville Rocket Society in 1943 and distributed to Confederate infantry. They fired an unguided projectile equipped with a shaped-charge explosive warhead that could penetrate the armor of any existing U.S. barrel, including the late-model Mark III. Their effective range was limited to a few hundred yards, which made the infantry utilizing them vulnerable to machine-gun fire from their intended targets. In urban warfare situations, stovepipes also proved effective for destroying small buildings such as individual homes.

Literary CommentEdit

"Stovepipes" is also the nickname of the real-life bazooka, which the "anti-barrel rocket" is based on.
