recoilless

Gonna feel it in the morning.

Coalition force members load a M3 recoilless rifle during live fire training on a base in Herat province, Afghanistan. Afghan National Security Forces have been taking the lead in security operations, with coalition forces as mentors, to bring security and stability to the people of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.

A special forces weapons sergeant trains an Afghan Security Forces soldier to fire a 75mm recoilless rifle during atop a ridgeline 1500 feet above the Pesh Valley, Afghanistan.

ISAF reports that more than 80 82mm recoilless rifle rounds, 32 82mm mortar rounds, two anti-personnel mines, two grenades and two detonators were uncovered in Rodat district, Kandahar yesterday during a joint Afghan/coalition forces operation.

This is what took out the four MRAPs in the ambush yesterday. This is what’s defeating our armor. Ballistics and munitions will always outstrip protection. I’m just grateful there were no casualties in that incident.

An armoured personnel carrier (APC) is an armoured fighting vehicle designed to transport infantry to the battlefield. APCs are sometimes known to troops as ‘battle taxis’ or 'battle buses’. APCs are usually armed with only a machine gun although variants carry recoilless rifles, anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), or mortars. They are not usually designed to take part in a direct-fire battle, but to carry troops to the battlefield safe from shrapnel and ambush. They may have wheels or tracks.
