Author seeking assistance

Dear all

I am currently doing research for a novel set in 1990, I always try to be as accurate as possible in my writing: As part of my research I am trying to find out the 1990 cost of a single LAW 80 anti-tank rocket launcher. Unfortunately I have not been able to find this information on the web; is there anyone out there who can tell me what one of these weapons would have cost 20 odd years ago?

All assistance gratefully received


Book Reviewer
A FOI request to MoD Procurement and the NAO should get the information required if you are talking cost at procurement. Figures for cost at Bunging them out the Back Door are not available. Nobody sensible wanted one of those things on their hands so the after-sales market in 1990 was limited.

MOD's - give me a break. Just trying to help an author, you know?
