Description: The Carl-Gustaf is a 84mm recoilless, dependable multipurpose man-portable weapon for close-in direct fire attacks introduced in 1948. The key of this weapon system is the wide range of ammunitions developed to carry out different mission profiles as well as a variety of sight options. The Carl Gustaf can be operated by a two-man crew, gunner and loader, responding quickly to each new threat. The Carl-Gustaf M1 was introduced in 1948 with the M2 and M3 variants introduced later on. The M2 version launch unit weighs 14.2 kg and is 1130mm long. The M3 version launch unit weighs 10 kg and is 1065mm long. The Carl-Gustaf ammunition round typically weighs less than 5 kg.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 is a new version unveiled by Saab in September 2014 and featuring a lighter and shorter design with the launch unit weighing less than 7 kg and 1000mm long. The M4 version also features improved ergonomics and offers a wide range of ammunition types and sight options. The Carl-Gustaf M4 is a lightweight and flexible man-portable shoulder-launched multi-role weapon system. The US Army refers to this weapon system as the M3A1 MAAWS.
