What is the standard anti tank weapon used by the US army?
artillery shells and landmines.
Weeel Not Exactly----Actually the best anti tank weapon is another tank. The US has the best tank armor and anti armor projectile in the world. Ground forces do have weapons capable of defeating armor. The AT4 is a short range shoulder fired rocket that will defeat some armor. The TOW missile is a very capable anti tank system that can be mounted on a tripod, wheeled vehicle, light armor as well as helicopters. Helicopter and A10 Warthogs (other aircraft also) have very effective anti tank armament available to them.
Landmines are not a very effective anti tank weapon as the are indiscriminate and some what easy to detect with today's counter mine equipment. Artillery does have some anti armor rounds but defeating tanks is not artillery batteries first priority depending on which theatre of operation it is in.

The German 88mm Cannon. During the North African campaign, the Germans began to use the 88mm Anti-aircraft gun as an anti-tank gun. It Fred a high velocity round which could penetrate the armor of any Allied tank. In North Africa, the Germans dug a pit for their 88mm Gun crews so that when it fired the shell flew across the top of the desert floor. Read More

When US Army M2/M3 Stuart light tanks counter-attacked Japanese forces in Corregidor in 1942, they ran into tank traps: a barricaded road which channeled the US light tanks into a specific area (zone) which was zeroed in with 37mm anti-tank guns. When the US Stuart tanks took that route, they would be hammered by those anti-tank guns. That was one form of a tank trap. Read More

Curiously enough, the Russian name for this weapon has the same initials as Rocket Propelled Grenade does in English. It dates back to the 1960s. It is mainly an anti-tank weapon, but not exclusively so. I seem to remember that well on into WWII there was a shoulder held similar weapon, called the Bazooka, an US designed weapon quite effective. An earlier weapon was a PIAT, (Projectile Infantry Anti Tank) used in the 40s against… Read More

Depends on how you define gun. In WW II, a Japanese battleship was planned that fired shells 18 inches in diameter. The US Navy used battleships with 16 inch guns. The US Army had an 11 inch cannon (search the term Atomic Annie) that was a portable cannon with a 20 mile range (and could fire a nuclear weapon).
