Pansarvärnspjäs (Pvpj) 1110

The idea of a weapon similar to, but heavier than, the famous Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle was raised in the early 1950s. Bofors made prototypes in 1954 and in 1959 the gun was standardized as the pvpj 1110.  On top of the barrel is a modified Automatic Rifle m/42 which is used as a spotting rifle. The gun itself uses a 4x telescopic sight. In combat, the gun was fired at the sides or rear of the enemy tanks. After firing, the unprotected vehicles had to leave quickly as the recoil flame clearly gave away their positions. The ammunition was of a single type, a fin-stabilized, high explosive anti-tank (HEAT) grenade, weighing about 10 kg.
