that's the way they test the equipment having some stupid guy to get fuck up wen something goes wrong so he can get hurt......
You ok, NO. I have thing blown up in my face all the time.
The AT-4 is not a good weapon, I saw one lying on a pallet waiting to be fired on a familiarization range, go off and send the rocket downrange without being touched. However, with the number of these things fired by the military during training, shit is bound to go wrong. If they could make everything as reliable and rugged as the m67 frag grenade, life would be good
by the cheapest bidder!
It appeared to me that the motor exploded during ignition. I couldn't tell if the round went off down range. I don't know at what range the missle arms itself, (30 meters)?
AND ROGER. And more than likely it was old when the Army got it.
LOL a guy I used to work with moved on to an engineer job designing carbon fiber tubes for rocket launchers, if that was one of the ones he helped build then it's no surprize it blew up, he was a few cans short of a six pack.
It was nice to see all the others rush over to see if this troop had any physical damage.
