How Does This Disposable Vietnam-Era Rocket Launcher Hold Up Today?

These guys put a disposable Vietnam-era rocket launcher to the test.

Not many people know that disposable Vietnam-era rocket launchers even existed, but they did.

Maybe there’s reason they aren’t made anymore, but you’ll want to watch this video to find out why.

Larry Fiandt is a veteran of the Vietnam war and as you just saw he gave Weapon Hunter host Paul Shull a look at the M72 LAW, a 66mm disposable Vietnam-era rocket launcher. This was a one time use weapon designed to pierce through tanks and armored trucks.

Do you think you could have hit the target on the first try? Paul at least got it right the second time, much to the liking of the other Vietnam Vets.

As you just saw the disposable Vietnam-era rocket launcher compared with today’s weaponry, as it sliced through that barrel like a knife through butter.
