Designed as a fire and forget anti-tank weapon, the TCML-1 may not have the bells and whistles of the top shelf alternatives, but it makes up for bling with reliability, dependability, and simplicity.
Capable of being loaded and fired by one person, the weapon fires a self propelled rocket or missile designed to engage enemy vehicles or bunkers/dug in positions. Launching a standard warhead accurately up to six hundred meters, the weapon is capable of firing a standard rocket or missile approximately two kilometers away.
The missile launcher itself is exceedingly simple to operate, load, and fire, meaning it can be fired by anyone with enough common sense to follow simple diagrams printed on each launcher tube. The weapon can also be reloaded as a repeat use weapon, but is cheap enough to be used as a 'fire and forget' weapon, used to fire at a target and the tube cast away.
The only downsides of the weapon is that it entirely relies on the missile fired, the user's choice of target, and that it cannot be used in tight, confined spaces or else the backblast from the rocket will cause overpressure damage to unprotected infantry leading to injuries or death.
