The best Multi-Purpose Weapon System there is

The Carl-Gustaf system is a true multi-role, man-portable shoulder-fired weapon.

A weapon's multi-role capacity can mean the difference between combat success and failure. The highly versatile Carl-Gustaf system is a true multi-role, man-portable shoulder-fired weapon. The system offers the soldier various types of ammunition, ranging from armour penetration and anti-personnel, to ammunition for built-up areas as well as special features like smoke and illumination. The M3 version of the launcher features significant weight reduction and improvements for urban operations.
