The M1A1 Bazooka is a recoilless anti-tank rocket launcher, created to provide infantry a means to combat armored vehicles from a distance. The weapon uses 60mm self-propelled rockets, and has an effective range of 140 meters. Most commonly used were HEAT (high explosive anti-tank) rounds, but the weapon could be loaded with HESH (high explosive squash head) rounds as well, which were packed with plastic explosives on a delayed charge for the purposes of tactical building demolition, but were not known for being particularly effective against heavily armored vehicles.
The M1A1 and its various iterations found its way into the hands of most Allied forces during the course of World War II, and the weapon's success lead to its use by the United States up until the Vietnam War.
The Bazooka is an American anti-tank rocket launcher, and it is an excellent tool for fighting armored units as infantry. This launcher greatly outranges anti-tank grenades, with good effect at 10-70 meters and moderate accuracy up to and including 100-150 meters. The sights can be zeroed to 50m, 100m and 150m. Replenish cost per rocket is currently 150 credits. Compared to the Panzerschreck the Bazooka reloads faster but the rockets fly slower, making it better when close to tanks where you need to destroy it faster than it picks you off.
