Footage surfacing from 2018 shows some Norwegian Infantrymen slingin' Carl Gustaf rounds downrange from a prone fighting position during a live-fire exercise.
Now me personally, I have only ever used AT-4's and a Javelin, but just watching this footage, the Carl Gustaf makes me feel like I had missed opportunity... My older brother, who served with 1st Ranger Battalion DID get the opportunity during his career to fire one of these bad boys. While him and I were sharing stories back and forth one day, he described the Carl Gustaf as "being punched in the d***" when you fire it, in case anyone needed some sort of real-life reference.
Don't get me wrong, the AT-4 is an exhilarating weapon system to fire, but the fact it's a one-time-use in my opinion is wasteful and questionable for combat usage. As it appears in the footage, the Carl Gustaf provides relatively similar features and is clearly a reusable system, as these two-man teams send 4-5 rounds each.
Let us know what you think about the Carl Gustaf in the comments below. Do you think it is superior to the AT-4? Also, tell us a funny story about your experiences with these weapon variants. Josh Brooks, another writer here at Funker530 has plenty to go around. :)
