  3. Its been repaired by either Ravers or Ugly. Ravers if the bag is Morrisons. Farmfoods says it's Ugly.

    You jest. If Ravers repaired it you'd have to wait 8 months whilst a master craftsman encased the warhead in a bespoke plastic woven from oil hand-extracted by virgins in the outer Magreb, whilst another master craftsman engraved the plastic with images of a betweeded gentleman stalking the elusive Merkava. You would be charged £95k for the work and only in a minimum of pairs.
  5. To keep the dust out of your rusted-to-**** 50-year-old fuse mechanism, maybe?
  6. I'd have thought that taping a loose bag to the launcher itself so that the rocket punches through would be better though - RPGs aren't known as being the most accurate weapons at the best of times, so ******* the aerodynamics up as well can't be too helpful...

    He's wrapped nails onto the warhead to get a bit of anti-personnel oomph to his heat round.

    Geez didn't you guys ever do that?

  8. Probably because he's a right ******* muppet and keeps bumping into stuff with it, they've padded the soft metal casing around the piezo crystal ingniter somewhat to give themselves a chance.

    My Dad was with the Kenyan infantry at one time, they still had SMLE with the cup type grenade launcher, black nasty was the most important thing to have, securing the grenade in the cup, because Kenyans are quite incapable of carrying anything at the high port for more than 10 yards.

  9. When will they realise that by sawing a big cross into the front of the RPG round you will make a bigger hole in the Tank?

    Abdul always regretted falling asleep in the Marksmanship Principles lesson - Sight Alignment and eye relief remained one of life's mysterys to him.

    Right up to the point where the backblast took the door off his car.

    It`s to keep the powder dry. That`s what they told us to do with the Brown Bess.

    Now he's using the wrong shoulder...going from bad to worse frankly.
