    Interesting American Army SRAAW video

    Found this there now, shows a small view on how the yanks train their grunts on the AT-4. I just did it myself recently in integrated and found it interesting.

    Sharing the love.

    I don't remember doing it quite that way, but I'll see if I can't track down my video, see if it's on there.

      Yea, I've seen that before there are also other videos of the same group doing alot of other basic training i.e bayonet, grenade, shooting etc

      I never realised there was so much procedure to these types of things.

          i seen in the show "future weapons" a new version that can be fired indoors , it has some sort of salt water in the rear which absorbs the heat and percussion

          something along those lines anyway

            Do I detect a hint of sarcasm

                Ahhhhh, memories, takes me back to the earlier days of my career at Ft Benning. Steps for everything "you....don't get ahead" and lugging the AT4 around the place. You don't get to fire it normally, usually just a 9mm sub-calibre adoptor which replicates the recoil. It doesn't have the bang/woosh of the real ones though. Good times.

                  A few of our recruits were lucky enough to fire the warshots.

                    Lucky buggers that got to fire it. Our instructor had been in for something like 15 years and had only fired four in his whole career!!!!!!!!!!!

                      It is called the AT-4CS (Confined space). Seemingly the Irish Army have a few.... never seen any though.

                      The SRAAW standard version can also be fired indoors.... just make sure you have lots of space....

                        The Brits are using the AT-4 now, calling it the ILAW (interim LAW), the original 66mm LAW is making a comeback in Iraq courtesy of the USMC. They prefer it to the AT-4 due to it's lower weight, compact design and smaller backblast. It's being used in FIBUA for attacking buildings so it's smaller warhead isn't seen as a drawback.

                          We used the 66 in 2003 during the initial invasion, drew them from pre-po'd stores so god only knows where they came from.

                            pre-po'd = pre-positioned?

                              We normally fire the sub-calibre here in the irish defence forces for basic as well. Has a back blast simulator which does what it says on the tin, though how would i compare.

                              If you listen very carefully you can just about make out the drill instructor in the video saying that the two best recruits will fire warshots at the end of the AT-4 training.
