During World War II, The M1A1, M9, and M9A1 rocket launchers were viewed as effective weapons when used against enemy emplacements and fixed fortifications. It was designed as an anti-tank weapon with a shaped charge. The M9 bazooka was able to penetrate up to 5 inches of armor plate. General Eisenhower described it as one of the four "Tools of Victory" which won World War II for the Allies - atom bomb, the Jeep, the C-47 Skytrain and the rocket launcher.
