“Armed with a rocket launcher and nerves of steel, this unit specializes in destroying tanks”
General Information[edit | edit source]
Their high damage against Defending Tanks, Buildings and Walls makes them useful to get fast time to elapse in the World War battle. Because they have a short range of fire compare to most of Defensive Buildings and they can't fire through the walls, they are better deployed with other short range troops to protect them.
Historical Description[edit | edit source]
The Swedish military realized in the early 1970s that their new Miniman anti-tank infantry weapon could not penetrate Soviet hull armor. As a result, they got to work on what would become the AT4. Development began in 1976 and continued for a decade before its formal adoption. During this time, the U.S. Army took a liking to the design and created its own adapted version called the M136. These sister weapons have been in use by both militaries and their allies ever since, first being deployed in the 1989 American invasion of Panama.
The AT4 is a single-use weapon: once fired, the tube can be discarded. It is effective against tanks, helicopters, and other armored vehicles. The original Swedish manufacturer FFV coined the now-standard term 'beyond-armor effects' to describe the ability of the AT4 to harm the occupants of a vehicle without penetrating its exterior, such as a hit causing a pressure wave *through* the armor. The weapon's main downside is the enormous backblast created when firing. This was addressed by adding a saltwater countmass to the AT4-CS (Confined Space) variant, rendering it more suitable for urban warfare.
