Light weapons are missiles that are used by two or three persons serving as a crew, although some of them may be supported and used by a single person. Light weapons are essentially used by militaries around the world and its applications have improved widely among armed groups. They contain, inter alia, heavy machine guns, hand-held under-barrel and mounted grenade launchers, portable anti-aircraft guns, portable anti-tank guns, recoilless rifles, portable launchers of anti-tank missile and rocket systems, portable launchers of anti-aircraft warhead systems as well as mortars of a caliber of less than 100 millimeters. The latest generation of light weapons is more destructive, more portable, and normally more experienced than older systems, hovering concerns about their uncontrolled generation. Light weapons are signified by their durability, cost effectiveness, accessibility and utility.
