This is a simple and effective one-man lightweight antitank weapon (LAW) .It is a shoulder fired, disposable


rocket launcher with HEAT warhead, which has been adopted the M72 LAW. The LAW provided individual infantrymen with lightweight, recoilless, disposable weapon, which was extremely simple to operate, and effective against armored vehicles and many types of field entrenchments and light fortifications. The M72A4 and M72A5 warheads are optimized for greater armor penetration and are better suited for use against the tanks, while M72A6 and A7 warheads are optimized against targets such as APC / MICW vehicles, with lesser penetration but more significant behind the armor blast / kill effect.
