The PIAT launcher is heavy (15 kilograms), but the projectile is fairly light (1.1 kilograms). It has about the same range and penetration as an M9 bazooka (~150 yards direct fire and 4 inches of RHA at a right angle), which weighs 6.9 kilograms for the launcher (7.2 for the M9A1 with a different sight) and 1.6 kilograms for the projectile. The Panzerschreck, for comparison, was 11 kilograms with the blast shield (9.25 without) and fired a 3.3 kilogram projectile with about the same effective range, but closer to 9 inches of penetration against armor.

All of them can fire farther, but they'd be indirect fire without adequate sights or range tables.
