Abstract:

The Army Concept Team in Vietnam evaluated the M72A1E1 Light Antitank Weapon improved LAW to determine its suitability for use by US Army units in the Republic of Vietnam. The weapon was evaluated by the 4th, 9th, and 25th Infantry Divisions from 1 April to 4 July 1969 in regular combat operations. During the evaluation, the improved LAW was used primarily against enemy bunkers, buildings, and personnel, and in a reconnaissance-by-fire role.
