  2. That Lara Logan has a durdy mouth...

    This weapon will result in stonethrowers getting shot by top cover.

  3. What else can you do?,it looks a terrible bit of kit
  4. Similar thread running in QMs&MT.
    PIRA were using similar weapons a few years back, time to dust off the manuals I think.

    Not a nice weapon, simple and effective. Apparently being manufactured in backyards all over Iraq.
  5. Erm no.......apparently made in russia,etc and sold to the saddam regime. RKG-3 ( 3M, 3EM and some 3Cu) were in the inventory in large numbers. :D
  6. NEVER underestimate soviet weaponry
  7. Oh, OK, to be precise - apparently copies being manufactured in backyards all over Iraq.
  8. That thing is a bit tasty! Looks like top cover best get preped for opening up on anyone and anything then!!
  9. Not exactly a new technology. The Russians came out with the RPG-43 in the middle of WWII. The Germans also had the Panzerhandgranate-41 in WWII as well. Both received a number of development upgrades until people figured it was better to have troops carry bazooka rounds which could fire themselves 100m than A-T grenades which need to be lobbed a grand total of about 15 meters.
