    you would not believe the difficulty i have in zeroing in my rockets…

  • Raven

    A reusable laser for a single-use weapon…does anyone else see the problem there? Or do they expect troops to strip the laser unit off before tossing the empty tube?

    • Joe Schmoe

      They do.

      We used to attach $10,000 night vision scopes to the LAW’s sometimes for night aiming. Two throw bars after you fire and the scope comes off.

      The problem with this laser is I will be damned if you can see during the day the laser dot on a vehicle that far away in the first place. Furthermore, you usually will have to lead the vehicle anyways, which means you need to use a sight with leading options.

      • Raven

        Huh, I’ll be damned. Seems like it might get missed in combat, though.

        As for capability to lead targets and have a decent chance of seeing your laser/aiming point in daylight, that sounds like the sort of thing a man could make a fine profit for inventing. Something that can be bolted to an SMAW or a Carl Gustav, and estimate proper hold to hit a moving target.

        • Stinger

          Your not considering the possibility that the missile steers to hit the laser dot, in which case you keep the dot on the vehicle and the missile steers to hit it.

    This would be cool in IR, maybe for the Carl Gustav. Not for a LAW though, as it’s single use.

    • Jean Luc Picard

      Lots of single use weapons have mountable optics as you pretty much reuse the optic on an other loaded tube AT4 is an example. Some weapons are even conceived like so.
      The Javelin missile launcher or even the Panzerfaust 3 who have the trigger / aiming unit as a reusable section and the preloaded tube with rocket/missile and countermass as a single use part.

  • Lance

    Forget the laser can you get a LAWs rocket??? LOL

  • Patrick

    Not trying to be a dick but are LAWs even used anymore?

    • Jean Luc Picard

      They do more than ever, don’t forget that most of the threats by now comes from jeeps, light suicide vehicles and such things which made the M72 more useful and adequate than bigger weapons.

      • Tom Currie

        The US Army dropped them in favor of the M136 AT4, but apparently the USMC is still using them in Afghanistan and a few other countries still use them.

        I’d be interested in seeing just how Crimson Trace managed to create a laser that includes ballistic drop — the main issue with aiming the LAW was always the need to determine the range to the target and use the proper range line on the cheap ass ballistic reticle sight. The LAW rocket itself is perfectly capable of its official 200m range, but most user couldn’t hit anything beyond 50-75 meters because they failed to use the sights properly. A laser would make it easier to aim — at close range — but would effectively limit the user to engaging targets only at close range.
