The M72A2 is a light weight, self-contained disposable Anti-tank system. It was used effectively by Rangers in Operation Just Cause in Panama and also in Somalia against armed militia and buildings. The launcher is composed of two tubes, one inner and one outer. To fire, the inner tube is withdrawn to a locked position, the sights are raised, and the rocket is armed. The target can now be engaged, just don't forget to check your back blast area! The expendable launcher can also be used as a field expedient booby trap by inserting one or more grenades
