Similar thread running in QMs&MT.
PIRA were using similar weapons a few years back, time to dust off the manuals I think.

Not a nice weapon, simple and effective. Apparently being manufactured in backyards all over Iraq.

Not exactly a new technology. The Russians came out with the RPG-43 in the middle of WWII. The Germans also had the Panzerhandgranate-41 in WWII as well. Both received a number of development upgrades until people figured it was better to have troops carry bazooka rounds which could fire themselves 100m than A-T grenades which need to be lobbed a grand total of about 15 meters.

NTM
