yep still in use in many places, in many configurations. Has odd-looking ammunition with patterns of holes around the base of the brass shell. part of the gas-direction recoil-reduction design. the bazooka launched a rocket; the rr has a rifled barrel.

the USMC used to have a tracked vehicle called the "Ontos" which mounted eight of them. the Army had some on jeeps.
