The AT4 is a Swedish 84 mm (3.31 in) unguided, man-portable, single-shot, disposable, recoilless smoothbore anti-tank weapon built by Saab Bofors Dynamics (previously Bofors Anti-Armour Systems).

The AT4 is intended to give infantry units a means to destroy or disable armored vehicles and fortifications, although it is generally ineffective against current modern main battle tanks (MBTs). The launcher and projectile are manufactured prepacked and issued as a single unit of ammunition, with the launcher discarded after a single-use.

The AT-4 HEAT has an effective range of 300 m and carries a warhead with an unmatchable behind armor effect. it is this combination that gives the AT-4 HEAT its ability to penetrate the armor of modern light armored vehicles and devastate their interiors.
