Recoilles rifles
« on: 15-06-2010, 22:06:40 »
I know we don't really have a standard Airborne faction (Purple Heart Lane, Pointe du Hoc ...) but it would be nice 2 have Recoilles rifles on maps as pickups or replacing the zooks with r.r. and making zooks pickup kits.

Pointe Du Hoc is about Rangers, not Airborne.

It was my understanding the bazooka was a recoiless rifle...

No, that is an Shaped charge rocket. Recoil less rifles are a different way if shooting your warhead.

In my knowledge the zooka is a RL. It has a shaped charge/rocket.

The r.r has an exploding/chemical projectile (don't hold me for this, not sure)

and the Rangers also used them, more then Airborne - thnx for reminding me

I think the difference between a rocket launcher and a recoilless rifle (or more correctly, recoilless gun) is that the projectile from a rocket launcher (a rocket) has a propellant that keeps the rocket moving after it has been fired, whereas a recoilless rifle has, much like a regular rifle, a 'bullet', which is propelled by a single combustion.

Rockets do, of course, not have any recoil. This is because they push against the air and not against the weapon. The principle of a recoilless rifle is that although the bullet 'pushes' against the rifle, there is an equal force in the opposite direction also 'pushing' against the rifle, so there is no net force on the rifle.

So, theoretical, the Faust is a RR? Doesn't it also need a rifled barrel to be a RR or am i wrong. (hence the name recoilless rifle)

Technically, the Panzerfaust is a recoilless gun, because it has no rifling. It's quite common however, to see the term recoilless rifle used anyway.

The M18 wasn't used until April 1945, so there's no way you'll see it in Purple Heart Lane.

basicly

A rifle grenade is also a recoilless rifle?

Yes and no. There are 6 (i think) rings on the rifle grenade attachment for the M1. If you put the grenade no further then the first 3 you can shoot it from the shoulder without braking it because there is an open space now between the grenade and barrel. The grenade will not fly as far but the recoil is just a tad worse then a regular shot. if you put it on the last ring and shout it from the shoulder you have a good seal and all the force will be put on the grenade propelling it the furthest but giving it one hell of a kick.

Shooting the american rifle nade is a tad more complicated than people think.
