M40A1 106MM Recoilless Rifle with M8C Spotting Rifle
 

The 106mm recoilless rifle M40A1 and its M8C .50 caliber spotting rifle are now limited standard items with the U.S. armed forces.

The 106mm RCL M40A1 was fired from an attached mono-wheeled M79 tripod.

The 106mm RCL was designed as a light weight anti-tank weapon that could kill main battle tanks. 

Ammunitions are high explosive, anti-tank (HEAT), high explosive, plastic (HEP), anti-personnel (APERS), and drill (inert). 

The .50 caliber spotting rifle M8C was designed to be the primary ranging device for the weapon. 

The .50 caliber spotter round was much shorter than the .50 caliber Browning machine gun cartridge. 

The spotter round was a ballistic match to the HEAT and HEP rounds fired by the M40A1. 

On impact with the armored target, the gunner saw a puff of white smoke in his sight. 

If the puff of smoke was on target, he fired the main gun. 

If not, he made his traverse and elevation corrections and fired the .50 spotter again. 

A one-shot hit with the 106mm was imperative, because the back blast from the breech extended in a cone-shaped fan 75 yards deep and 150 yards wide.
