The unit is also armed with a pair of short range anti-tank weapons, usually the 89mm LRAC (Lance-Roquettes AntiChar de 89 mm modèle F1) reusable rocket launcher, but some units are issued with the new disposable APILAS (Armor-Piercing Infantry Light Arm System) portable one-shot 112mm recoilless antitank weapon.

The combat groups are armed with the 5.56mm FAMAS (Fusil d’Assaut de la Manufacture d’Armes de Saint-Étienne) assault rifle and 7.62mm NF-1 general purpose machine-gun. The FAMAS is also designed to fire a number of different rifle grenades including the AC-58 anti-tank grenade for short range defence against armoured vehicles. The antitank group is armed with two 89mm LRAC F1 (Lance-Roquettes AntiChar de 89 mm modèle F1) anti-tank rocket launchers.
