Description 
The AT4CS AST is an anti-structure tandem weapon that has special internal ballistics allowing to be fired from confined spaces; tight jungle, in front of obstacles or even with own troops in close vicinity. Using the AT-4CS AST the dismounted soldier has a unique weapon to effectively take advantage of the building structures of the urban battlefield and at the same time deny the ennemy that same advantage. The AT-4 CS AST rocket launcher is manufactured by a Swedish Company.

Operation
The AT4CS AST is based on same manufacture as the basic model AT-4, only the ammunition used change. AT4CS AST combines the firepower of the tandem warhead with the ability to fire from confined spaces and other narrow firing positions. Where conventional shoulder launched weapons would force the gunner to leave cover for a more open and exposed firing position, the unique internal ballistic design of the AT4CS AST systems allows maximum use of the protection offered by the urban environment. Through the setting of the mode selector the AT4CS AST is optimised to defeat a multitude of the targets characterizing the urban environment ranging from building structures to light armoured vehicles.
Sight
The AT4CS AST sights are iron sights and are similar in concept and use to those on assault rifles.
Projectiles
AST (Anti Structure Tandem-warheads)
Designed for urban warfare where a projectile heavier than the HEDP AT4 is needed. Two warheads, first one a HEAT with a shallow cone resulting in less penetration but a wider hole, and a second follow through high-blast warhead. It has two settings: one for destroying bunkers and one for mouse holing a building wall for combat entry.
Combat use
The AT-4CS AST is preloaded with a specially developed AST (Anti-Structure Tandem) warhead. The tandem warhead of AT-4CS AST is designed to be able to defeat a large number of different targets, ranging from an enemy position behind heavy brick or reinforced concrete walls, to an enemy within a field fortification or in a light armoured vehicle. Depending on the gunner's choice of fuze setting using the weapon mode selector, the main charge will either detonate in the building wall or in the room behind, creating a new point of entry.
