M72 Fire From Enclosure, A8 and A10

The Nammo M72 FFE combines decades of innovation and Nammo expertise to deliver a world-leading close combat weapon. Disposable, easy to operate, and extremely lightweight and powerful, it provides true fire-from-enclosure (FFE) capability, allowing warfighters to maintain cover and concealed positions. The anti-armor variant (M72 A8) is effective against technical vehicles, concrete walls and light armored personnel carriers, while the anti-structure variant (M72 A10) features an autonomous dual-mode fuze and can defeat brick, adobe, earthen fortifications and technical vehicles.
