German forces are believed to be weak, but could have support from some tanks or assault guns. To combat this, the 17th Airborne has received some of the new 57mm recoilless rifles.
I read an AAR at the National Archives II by ETO units on the effects of the new RCLs in combat against the Germans; and basically, a house full of Germans surrendered to some troops using the RCL (can't remember at the moment if it was a 57 or 75) because they thought that a tank was shelling their position; and when they found out that it was just a man portable launcher, they got really, really, upset.
