English: The PIAT, for Projector, Infantry, Anti Tank, was one of the earlier anti-tank weapons based on a HEAT shell. It was developed by the British starting in 1941, reaching the field in time for the invasion of Sicily in 1943. Unlike the US bazooka and its German copy, the Panzerschreck, the PIAT could be used safely in enclosed spaces which made it more useful in close-combat and for hiding in houses.
