M72 Vietnam 1968 Grenada 1983 Iraq 2008

Developed in the 1960s to offer a more man-portable one-shot weapon in lieu of the 15-pound 90mm M20 “Super Bazooka,” the original 5.5-pound 66mm M72 LAW has seen continual service since then. The above images are from 1968 Vietnam, 1983 Grenada, and 2008 Iraq. The LAW endures, it would seem. (Photos: National Archives)
