The PIAT

The PIAT was an infantry antitank weapon which, despite it being a spring fired weapon, had some success against enemy armour. The secret lay in the PIAT bomb, which was a hollow shaped-charge projectile. This reprint includes the 1942 draft pamphlet and the official British Army Small Arms training manual of 1943 and is illustrated throughout showing stripping, assembly and use.

The 1942 edition includes a series of handling in battle diagrams not included in the 1943 edition.
