FAF Infantry Heavy Weapons (MT, PMT) (Items Available for Export)

Mk58 Disposable Anti-Tank Launcher/Lanceur Antichar Jetable (Available for Export)
The Mk58 is a cheap, lightweight, disposable rocket launcher, firing a relatively small projectile of only 60mm in diameter and 615 grams in weight. The weapon is recoilless in operation, and rather than eject the exhaust gases out the rear of the weapon, the Mk58 instead ejects a counter mass equivalent to the projectile and gas leaving the front of the weapon, consisting either doped fiberboard flakes or plastic chips. This use of a light countermass which rapidly decelerates after leaving the weapon allows the Mk58 to fired from within enclosed spaces without giving away the position of the user as conventional backblast would. The Mk58 is ineffective against the frontal armor of MBTs, but is useful against the side and rear armor of heavy vehicles, as well as light armored vehicles in general, and can be used against fortifications.
