BOLT ACTION : AUSTRALIAN PIAT AND ANTI-TANK RIFLE TEAMS (PACIFIC)

 

The Australian Army was supplied by Britain with the PIAT anti-tank weapon, but this saw only extremely limited use by the Australians, as the threat from Japanese tanks was minimal. The weapon found more use against Japanese emplacements as an improvised bunker-buster than the role it was designed for.

The AIF Divisions brought their anti-tank rifles back with them from the desert campaigns and did continue to find a limited use for them in the early battles against the rare sight of enemy tanks, or the more common use of firing them at Japanese bunkers.
