M72 is portable one-shot 66 mm unguided anti-tank weapon used by most standard infantry units in NATO. In early 1963, the M72 LAW was adopted by the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps as their primary individual infantryanti-tank weapon, replacing the M31 HEAT rifle grenade and the M20A1 "Super Bazooka" in the U.S. Army. American production of the weapon began by Hesse-Eastern in 1963, it is still in production by Norway's  Nammo Raufoss AS and their subsidiary Nammo Talley, Inc. in Arizona and Turkey's Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation 

The M72 were issued as a round of ammunition since it was a one shot weapon. It had been intended that, in the early 1980s, the M72 would be replaced by the FGR-17 Viper; but this program was canceled by Congress and the M136 AT4 was introduced in its place. 

It reentered service in Armed Forces of the United Kingdom, Canada, United States during the Irag and Afghanistan to serve as a light  individual assault weapon since the M72 is lighter than the AT4.

Ingame the M72 was used by America, United Kingdom,  Australia, Canada, Netherlands, New Zealand and South Korea.
