The Vespa 150 TAP (Troupes Aιro Portιes) is an Italian Vespa scooter which is modified by creating a hole in the legshield to carry a M20 75 mm recoilless rifle...

Yep.

I mean, it was a carrier; not a firing platform. It was meant to transport the rifle and rounds, not to fire it.
Through judicious medication I have the brain patterns of Lizzie Borden and the steaming genitals of Genghis Khan, but I am undone.

BOO. It's not as awesome as it was 5 minutes ago.

It's a recoil-less rifle (bazooka, light rocket launcher), not like there is much of a boom under your butt if you did fire it from the stored position.  Aiming would be kind of a challenge.

I'm imagining the hilarity when a rocket jams in the tube.

Of course, they were Italians, and I have no doubt somebody tried to.
