The Boys anti-tank rifle is a British anti-tank rifle.


The Boys anti-tank rifle was the primary infantry anti-tank weapon in the first half of the war. Like many anti-tank rifles of the time, the Boys was adequate against light tanks and other soft skinned vehicles, but with the increasing thickness in tank armour, it became obsolete and was replaced with other more potent anti-tank weapons, such as the M1 Bazooka and PIAT.

In Battlegroup42 the Boys anti-tank rifle is the primary weapon of the anti-tank class for a majority of the Allies in the early part of the war. It is also mounted in a number of Universal Carriers.
