The British BOYS antitank rifle was used on all fronts of WW2 by whomsoever could get them. They were not much good for anything over a light tank but could blind armor with a good shot or knock off a tread. I have seen it in use by the US , Soviet Union , France and Germany but have never see a photo of a Japanese soldier with one.
Has anyone seen this?
Firing it is like getting hit along side the head with a piece of wood attached to a steel pipe and maybe the Japanese soldiers wanted to avoid this. I certainly did after the first shot with mine.
