The AT-4 commonly referred to as The Pansarskott or The Original AT4 was a Swedish built weapon that was designed and developed by Saab Bofors Dynamics in 1986 That was once known to have been one of the most wide sold weapons of the entire 20th and 21st Centuries, with the United States adopting the weapon in 1987 and building their own version while under license by ATK, one that would officially become known as the M136 that same year.

Though during the course of the 20th century going on into the 21st, the AT4 was eventually scrapped by the Republic of Sweden in 2017 after the fall of the United Nations, due to it containing ties to the American built M136, due to the 2 nations longer being allies at the time of 2016. After a failed lawsuit against the United States was made in order to force the superpower to relinquish all rights to the M136, due to the American industry ATK owning the rights to the M136's design (Whom at the time was still making the M136 without a license since the Break up of Nato) had been crushed, the AT4 had been removed entirely from the Swedish ranks and was replaced with the AT-12, a much bigger and more powerful version compared tot he AT-4.

During the Third World War, the American AT4 would be widely used by most of the nations within the Corcus Power coalition, along side the M72 Law, while the AT4 on the United Western Nations side would disappear from existence and would be replaced by the AT-12.
