The M72 series

The M72 is a lightweight, easy to use, single-use rocket launcher available in several different variants, tailored to meet specific mission requirements. First introduced in the late 1960s, and manufactured in the United States and under license in Norway since 1966, the current versions of the M72 lightweight assault weapon (LAW) build on decades of operational and combat experience.

M72 Training System

The M72 training system with the 21 mm subcaliber rocket gives a truly similar experience to the live round. The new on-axis trigger launcher may be adapted to use the 21 mm training rocket. The training system has the same weight as the combat system. This type of training is extremely cost-effective and safe for the user. The training launcher is reloadable multiple times.
