DD325 The Bazooka Man
King & Country
Providing additional fire support for the rifle squad is this lying prone Ranger about to fire his M1 Rocket Launcher. Measuring just over 5 feet long and firing a HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank) round it was the best infantry anti tank weapon of its time and quickly copied by the Germans. As well as ‘taking-out’ enemy armour it was also useful against bunkers and other defensive emplacements.
