If you think that's crazy, you clearly haven't seen their "industry standard escape-from-army-snipers test" through which they put the nimble sports cars.

Ahh. The Carl Gustav.

It was a training shot he used tho. Notice the fzzzzzzz instead of the BANG sound.

Nice hit - its not that easy.

I guess Ive shot more than a 100 rounds with that one.

Record: 3/3 hits in 6,5 secs on 2 different targets. All praise to my loader.

It's funny how you often hear people from all over the world with millitary training talking about their friend Carl from Sweden :p

Heh. Peaceloving sweeden. :)

They make some good guns.

Although the first versions (from 1984 I think) where heavy and had a backblast that was just about as lethal as the rocket. :p

Later versions got much lighter, and the backblast was dispersed thorugh various techniques.

Amazingly, the Carl Gustav seems virtually unknown in the hands of religious and terroist organisations. The Sweedes might actually have their weapondelivery under control!
