Polish Army Purchases M72 Light Anti-tank Rockets

Poland’s government has awarded a contract to supply the Polish Army with new M72-series light rocket launchers, according to the country’s Minister of National Defense Mariusz Blaszczak.

Mariusz Blaszczak tweeted on Thursday that Poland has signed a contract for the supply of several thousand M72 EC MK1 grenade launchers.

“It is a modern weapon designed to combat vehicles, including against heavy armored vehicles such as tanks,” Blaszczak said.

The M72 EC Mk1 is a portable one-shot 66-mm unguided anti-tank weapon produced by Nammo Raufoss AS in Norway and their subsidiary Nammo Talley, Inc. in Arizona.

The system is disposable, easy to operate, extremely lightweight and powerful. The M72 EC can penetrate up to 450 mm RHA. The dual safe fuze and on-axis trigger equip the warfighter with an improved weapon system that is both safe and effective.
