M113 106mm Recoilless
In Team Yankee
The M40 Recoilless rifles had largely become obsolete by 1985, with guided missiles being far more effective and accurate for the role of light anti-tank weapon. However, by comparison, recoilless rifles were still very cheap, easy to operate, and could be mounted on a large enough vehicle with little trouble. In fact, they could even be locally produced, as the technology didn't require any expensive electronics or programming; they're little more than modified cannons. For this reason, many countries continued using recoilless rifles like Iran.
While the US never mounted the M40 on an M113, they did produce a dedicated six-rifled tank destroyer called the M50 Ontos. This vehicle however was short-lived, so most countries used what they had, like the M113.
