in US, German, and British infantry sections but I've rarely come across actual Western accounts of their use. The Japanese issued them for their rifle squads as well and often pelted the enemy position with their "knee mortars" before an infantry charge. That German VG 1945 information I found revealed that expenditure rates per rifle infantry section was 25 rifle grenade rounds for a 1-day combat action. Were these decisive weapons for an infantry section like the squad automatic weapon was? I've read that they were generally not too accurate (the rifle stock had to be placed on the ground or under the arm due to the recoil).
