Not sure WHAT he has- except there is no backblast when firing- characteristic of any recoilless weapon. It is definitely not a 90mm, or the Soviet 57mm. It looks a LITTLE like a Carl Gustav, which US uses in limited amounts as the M3 MAAWS.

In a former (and younger) life, I have been an 11 Hotel platoon leader- it is most definitely NOT the M40 106 Recoilless (which is vehicle mounted, and weighs, IIRC, 430 lbs) . Nor is it the 3.5 Rocket Launcher, which is miscalled a Bazooka (that was actually the earlier rocket launcher, less than 3" diameter)

If you look on the ground right behind the guy and a little to his right you can see what I thing is empty shell casings. They look to be maybe 76mm or a tad bit smaller.

Ever heard the story about the mule and the cannon?
Many many years ago there was an experiment to see if a small mountain howitzer could be fired off the back of a mule. The barrel was fixed to the pack harness, the gun loaded and a fuze lit. Now keep in mind the onlookers were gathered at the opposite end of the mule which, for safety's sake was positioned at the edge of a cliff. Now mules are rather curious animals, and when the fuze was burning, the mule started turning around to see what it was, causing panic among the spectators. When the gun fired, the recoil sent the mule over the edge!

The recoiless goes back to WW 2, and there were several built as shoulder fired. The US M18 57mm and the later 90mm were two- but they were also built by several nations in other models.

He MAY have a Soviet SPG-9- which really should NOT be shoulder fired....

Epic resurrection!!! Good lord man, how long did you have to dig to find this one? Has to be at least close to a record.

By the way, love the avatar. Oh, and when someone resurrects a dead thread (zombie thread), they're required to supply cake and ice cream, just like a birthday party

Get moving man! I'll have Snickers ice cream cake, please. Two birds with one stone and all that.

Do you not recognize this as a resurrection? You were active on this thread THREE AND A HALF YEARS AGO!
