If I remember correctly, its an SMAW bunker buster. Whats interesting about this launcher is that it fires a 9x51mm tracer bullet (a 9mm bullet which is crimped into a 7.62x51mm case) as a spotting round.

P.S. For the second picture in the post, I still find a right side feeding 50 cal really strange looking for some reason. It just doesn’t “feel” right
