Info

The 57mm recoiless rifle works similar to a bazooka but instead of firing a rocket it fires a cannon round (basically a big bullet filled with explosives). This means it is more accurate, but it has a smaller explosion. Also, like its name says it has no recoil

You can think of it as a sort of sniper cannon gun
