I have been playing with the German Panzerschreck and the US bazooka. I set up vehicles on runways and fired at them.

If the range is as little as 100 meters I always miss!

I suspect the flight characteristics of both are poor.

Or the alternative is that I am hopeless with both weapons!  I have used all the different launchers in Arma2 and Operation Arrowhead.  With a bit of practice all are accurate at 300 meters.

I wonder if other players could check the flight characteristics of the launchers in iron Front.

i would have to look for the source but i remember reading a report on the panzerschreck from war days where a commanding officer complained that the weapon is hardly usably above hundred meters, as reasons he called the light projectile wich seems to be highly affected by wind, small branches of trees and everything else that doesnt detonate it but is hit or scratched by the projectile.
generally the shaped charge weapons of that period have all rather short effective range, the legendary panzerfaust 100 or 150 u will have a hard time finding it on any pictures of that period. panzerfaust 30m and 60m u see, but thats pretty much it.
the Gewehrgranatgerät also had AT grenades wich has as maximum range 150m on the sights, wich prolly reduces the effictive range to realistically 75 or 100 meters.

can u say why you dont hit? to low to high?
it isnt a problem making them more accurate, its basically giving them more speed and reduce the impact of gravitation and wind (wich isnt even necessary most of the times). But as far i know would be a sure hit distance of 300m not historically correct.

I like how they fly except for the speed. Footage shows them hit almost instantly.

These are the only 2 launchers in the game. What weapon did you use to achive the above results?

In my case both weapons drop very short of target.  50 meters is my own max accurate range.
