The M72 LAW or Light Anti-Tank Weapon, is a 66mm American portable rocket launcher. The launcher is a disposable weapon, consisting of a launch tube pre-loaded with a single rocket, which is then disposed of after firing. The weapon has been in service since the 1960s, seeing action in the Vietnam War, Gulf War, Afghanistan War, and the Iraq War.

The weapon has an effective range of 200 meters, and a maximum range of 1000 meters. The standard LAW is equipped with a HEAT shaped charge warhead, though HE-fragmentation and anti-structure versions exist.
