This weapon was captured in Iraq. Can anyone ID it ?
Unlikely that even insurgents would be dumb enough to fire an S-5 from the shoulder. Without the usually firer safety measures (LAW - all-burnt on leaving launch tube / RPG â delayed flight motor ignition), chances are the firer would get a mush full of backblast.Consensus is that this IS a homemade 57mm launcher.
