82mm recoilless. Someone remind me what was the calibre of Charlie G?

And the basic design is only seventy years old. No wonder the Americans have to spend fifty per cent of their budget on the military. Hell of a victory though.
No Yanks involved twas Brits and Afghans, but never let facts interrupt your ****ing pathological hatred. Maybe later you can skin an aborigine child to settle your nerves.

Hmm, it looks like an SPG-9 (same ammo as the BMP-1), but that has 73mm cal.

So, I'm mistaken, or the 82mm in the article is wrong. (???)
