We don’t spend a lot of time here talking about the Marines. God knows they do enough of that…
Anyway, there are a couple weapons in the inventory that only the Marines use. One of them is the SRAW, or Short Range Assault Weapon. Originally conceived as a bridge between the AT-4 rocket launcher and the Javelin/TOW anti-tank missile systems, the SRAW has now been modified as a bunker buster. It is relatively light, and yet has a significant warhead size. It also has the great advantage of being safe to fire from inside a builing. You may have noticed that our troops have been doing a lot of fighting in an urban environment lately. One othe advantage is that it has a very short minimum range. Firing from one building to the one across the street is by no means unheard of, so a short minimum range is important.
The video shows both the anti-armor version and the MPV. Because the Marines aren’t facing a lot of tanks these days, all the anti-armor versions have been converted to MPV and foreseeable future production will be the MPV.
