** During the Korean War, a number of U.S.-built recoilless rifles were captured by Chinese troops, who attempted to use them without being aware of how they operated. They didn't do it twice.

* This is the concept behind [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recoilless_rifle recoilless rifles]]. Instead of the recoil being absorbed by a gun carriage, it is countered by propellant gasses discharging the rear of the weapon. Therefore, a massive gun mount is not needed, allowing small vehicles and even individual soldiers to carry a weapon that can penetrate tank armor. The downside is that this backblast can kill anybody standing behind the weapon when it is fired, and the explosive pressure prevents it from being fired indoors i.e. hiding in a room and shooting out the window. Some models counter this by including a plastic canister of salt water at the back of the round, which absorbs the blast and disperses at much lower pressure.
