The PIAT (Projector, Infantry, Anti Tank) was a man-portable AT launcher based around the spigot mortar principle. It fired a 1.1kg HE/AT charge to an effective range of around 100m and when it was introduced in 1943, was capable of penetrating the armour of any Axis vehicle.
While heavier than contemporaries such as the Bazooka and Panzerschreck, the PIAT had advantages. There was no dangerous blowback that could injure nearby soldiers and reveal the location of the firer. Also, the simple construction made it easy to maintain. After the war, the PIAT continued to be used until the 1950s.
