Men of the Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment with a Wombat anti-tank recoilless rifle and Milan anti-tank missile, 1980 (c)

Photograph, 1980 (c).

The L6 Wombat was a light-weight variant of the British Army's standard 120 mm calibre recoilless anti-tank rifle, primarily designed for more mobile troops.

The Milan was adopted by the British Army in the 1970s and replaced the various recoilless ant-tank rifles. It allowed operators to guide a missile to its target via signals sent on a long wire. It remained in service until 2005.

One of 236 photographs of the British Army, 1970 (c)-1980 (c).
