Yes, there is photo evidence of Romanian Army using this weapon, mainly from spring 1944 onwards.

Thank you. I know these pictures - these are from the practise of romanian officers supervised/ teached by the Germans. The soviet tank in background was used as a target for the shooting from the panzerschreck. (photo is from southern Ukraine)
But I have never seen any photo from the real combat.....

Yes, there are mentions in war memoirs of some units destroying tanks with rocket launchers during the summer of 1944.
