An 84 mm Carl Gustav rocket launcher being used by soldiers of the 17th/21st Lancers, 1975 (c)

Photograph, United Kingdom, 1975 (c).

The Swedish-made Carl Gustav was normally operated by a two man crew, a gunner and a loader. Although designed as an anti-tank weapon, its tactical role was expanded with the adoption of other types of ammunition, including high-explosive fragmentation rounds, anti-personnel shrapnel rounds, smoke and illumination rounds.
