Strategy Page notes that the LAW rocket launcher is making a comeback. Though woefully outdated for use against armored vehicles, the AT4 and SMAW are a bit heavy and expensive for use against many of today’s targets.
The LAW has several advantages. It is compact (20 inches long, 2.6 inches in diameter), light (7.7 pounds) and cheap (about $2,000 each). It’s 2.2 pound warhead can still knock out light armored vehicles (and unarmored ones as well), but it most often used against enemy troops inside bunkers and buildings.
See Strategy Page for the rest.
MO noted another approach to the need for more appropriate shoulder-fired bunker busters in May when the Marines announced they’d be getting the Predator Short-Range Assault Weapon-Multiple Purpose Variant (SRAW-MPV) .
Plus, Strategy Page has finally added permalinks. Hallelujah.
