This had reminded me of a certain WW2 weapon:

But Google Image-Searching for "piat anti-tank grenade launcher", "piat anti-tank" and "british piat" all returned ONLY this image and no others! :o

Was cleaning my departed aunt-in-law's house last weekend and found this...

That seems to have been one of a book in a series!

Casca Series

 

Casca is a series of paperback novels, and since January 2014, ebooks as well, created and written by author Barry Sadler in 1979. The stories revolve around the life of Casca Rufio Longinus, the soldier in the Roman legions who drove the Holy Lance into the side of Jesus Christ on Golgotha, and who is doomed by Jesus to wander the Earth aimlessly, always as a soldier, until the Second Coming. Wikipedia

 

The Casca series is available as books, on Kindle and on Audio-books.  :D

You were very right about the Fat_Man from fallout_4 (pic below)

 

The real weapon that I had thought of was the British Piat, from a ww2 pic describing a British Commando D-Day mission. 

 

Another promotion for Vice89 :D

 

BTW, a Google image search for "piat anti-tank grenade launcher" does now show the correct images and sites about the piat weapon now and not just the "Fat_Man" weapon ! :hmm :glitch:
