The anti-tank rocket part doesn't look real. I don't think the rocket would have enough time to lock onto the car, would it? *Waits for military men to correct him*

Parts of it are definitely staged (for example, they must've put a remote-controlled flashpot in the car he shot with the GPMG and the Carl G, because small-arms ammo doesn't blow up like that, and there's enough back-blast from the recoilless rifle to strip anyone standing behind you NAKED when you fire it), but you could definitely HIT the cars if you practiced enough, and had a safe backstop. Ditto for the Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle; as long as you practiced enough with it to know how much lead you had to give it, you could do it. The problem with the Carl G is that you almost have as much time between pulling the trigger and the shell going down range as you do with a flintlock. It's a very weird sensation squeezing the trigger and having enough time to think "What? It didn't..." before it actually fires. These things are intended for anti-tank use only, and aren't guided, so you have to have a good gunner who doesn't mind risking himself to get close enough to use the bloody thing.
