The looking up thing might be because of something I never knew until I got a boxed one - it's meant as an upright gun as well as a sort of towed gun. (hard to explain, but look at the pics in the archive of teh box)

Yeah everyone from the Wehrmacht to Afghan warlords turns their mobile AA to AT and AP purposes. It's just the natural order of things when you are blowing stuff up for a living.

And over a 1000% cheaper than 10k per single use man portable Javelin missile, take note UK taxpayer.

I wanted to write Asphyxed that for you but the joke is sooooo over now.

I prefer it in the towed gun position in the comics it was always entrenched in that position rather than being upright.

It can't spin when its upright though can it? So a bit of an oversight there. Still a good bit of real world inspiration for the toy.
