The 21cm NW42 was a larger version of the 15cm NW41. Due to it larger size, the 21cm NW42 had five launching tubes compared to the six on the 15cm NW41. Mounted on a towed carriage derived from the 3.7cm PaK36 anti-tank gun, it featured a stabiliser fitted to the front in order to maintain balance when firing. The rockets were spin-stabilised and fired electrically, but the back blast created when launching the rockets left a highly visible smoke trail which left the position vulnerable to counter battery fire. Despite the improvements in the 21cm rocket, it continued to suffer from the dispersion problems as experienced with the 15cm rocket.
