Anti-tank Platoon (VAN707) (ANZAC) Spotlight


Includes three Anti-tank Squads each with two M67 90mm recoilless teams & six Medium four-hole bases.

The M67 recoilless rifle was a 90mm weapon designed primarily to be used as an anti-tank weapon. However, it could also be used in an anti-personnel role with the use of the specialised M590 anti-personnel round. It could be fired either from the ground using a bipod and monopod or from the shoulder using the fixed bipod as a shoulder rest and the monopod as a front grip.

The M67 proved itself as an effective weapon, though it was primary used against infantry and fortified targets rather than actual armoured targets. However, the M67 was not without its faults; mainly its weight and size of its back blast. These factors tended to limit the M67 use to purely defensive operations.
