Abstract : The bazooka was loaded and fired by a single operator in approximately four minutes and attained a range of 855 feet. The pick up device was loosened in an effort to eliminate any retarding action on the rocket, but this arrangement was unsatisfactory since a loosened pick up device allows the projectile to travel free of the line.
