The improved M72 LAW is derived from the basic 66mm man-portable, lightweight, direct fire predecessor and consists of an improved rocket motor that is capable of carrying various types of warheads to their intended target with high velocity (approx. 650 feet per second) depending upon the version of the LAW.


Soldiers can accurately engage targets up to 250 meters away.


The M72 replaced the anti-tank rifle grenade and M20 3.5-inch rocket launcher in US service.
