While the Boys anti-tank rifle was of British origin, the Lahti L-39 was a Finnish design. Both weapons were capable of penetrating the thinly armoured tanks that roamed the battlefield during the early stages of World War Two but as the conflict progressed so did tank design and the anti-tank rifle quickly became obsolete.

The Close-defence Rifle Teams
The lack of anti-tank weapons in the army has forced the formation of infantry
(anti-tank) or Close-defence teams. These are armed with molotov cocktails, explosives, and rifles, and trained to destroy tanks in close assault. Only the bravest men serve in these teams.
