The LAW 80 is being replaced, in the British Army, with the ILAW (AT4 CS). This has been reflecting in PR as you have noticed.

Are any AT-4s issued with a scope or alternate sight? The current one just can't be done properly in BF2 because the sight cannot be adjusted for range.

What about the CS varient? That doesn't have a lethal backblast, does it?

I think the Backblast is salt water, have seen that in future weapons(hate the bald guy) when the AT-4 CS was showing, so it can be fired in small spaces and can be made to blast holes in walls without taking down the whole building (but can be mistaken and typing crap)

The M136 can be fitted with optics, but the only model I have seen fitted was the AN/PVS-4. This is a larger night sight that is also used on the M2 and various weapons. I have seen a clean photo of this sight attached, I'll try to find that image and link it into this post.



As you can see from the photo, the launcher tube itself does not have attachment points for any optics. The PVS-4 is attached via an external adapter, which I don't know if it's compatible with other optics. Unless future maps will be made for darklight operations and all soldiers in PR are issued NVD's, I don't see this feature making its way into PR.

Regarding the CS variant, I was unfortunately not able to train with that weapon prior to my leaving the Army. A quote about that weapon is below concerning the backblast and the assumption that it might be salt water.

Quote:
To allow the soldiers to fire such weapons from confined spaces, SAAB Bofors developed the AT4CS version of the weapon. AT4CS features a counter-mass (some amount of liquid) in the rear part of the barrel, which is pushed back and partly evaporated upon the fire, compensating for the recoil, and effectively blocking the backblast.
To M. Warren: I am not in the military anymore, and my training with recent US Army equipment has been limited lately to outtings with the local ARNG unit or when taking part in advisor duties. I am still very familiar with about 90% of the current-issue gear though, and still retain my certifications. I have thought of reenlisting many times, but trying to start a family right now has been keeping that dream on standby.

While on active duty, I did try to attend as many weapons courses and seminars as possible, and was able to recieve my Infantry Weapons Specialist (Expert) qualification from Ft. Benning. Due to bronchitis I was unable to attend my scheduled live-fire of the Javelin, but oh well. I must admit that the weapons training was one of the most enjoyable parts of serving.

The AT4 projectile travels as fast as an air gun pellet at around 900-945FPS so its pretty fast.
