"This soldier is a Panzergrenadier. They are armed with a k98. If they can get near you trenches they will try to clear them with their dreaded Model 24 Stielhandgranate." — Official game quote
Panzergrenadiers are the most common enemy on the battlefield. They also are the only ones to throw grenades. Their stick grenades have a greater throwing range than the American pineapples, which makes these soldiers dangerous even at relatively long range. They can also be dropped off by a Sd.Kfz.251 and an Opel Blitzwagen.
