    Photo Of The Day and we’re in for a blast. The firepower of the 84 mm M2 Carl Gustaf anti-tank recoilless rifle is huge, but so is the blast. All that energy needs to go somewhere and in these pictures it’s clear. Above we have soldiers from The Norwegian Home Guard in Trøndelag practicing shooting with the 84mm recoilless rifle during the exercise Trøndelag 2017.

    Below we have soldiers from the Telemark battalion on a live-fire exercise in Latvia, firing an 84 mm M2 Carl Gustaf, anti-tank, recoilless rifle. Anywhere on the side is good, but you don’t want to be standing behind it, and you don’t want to be the target.
