Summary

The 106 mm Recoilless Rifle M40 is an American recoilless rifle designed to expunge the forces of propellant gases from the fired cartridge to the rear of the device to counteract the recoil force in the front. This allows for a lightweight, high-caliber artillery system for anti-personnel and anti-armour purposes.

Though the name suggests a 106 mm caliber, the M40 actually chambers 105 mm rounds, but is named as such to prevent the accidental loading of 105 mm rounds from the preceding M27 recoilless rifle.
