    The PIAT: ‘Projector, Infantry, Anti-tank’ was really a hand operated spigot mortar. It was an effective tank killer with a hollow-charge warhead, but suffered from a recoil-operated firing spring which would sometimes not work properly: if it didn’t properly recompress on firing it could be VERY hard to ‘rewind’, placing the operator in peril. It also had a very pronounced ‘kick’
