anybody who is curious about the weapon used by armies, insurgents, terrorists, etc. can look up on this information on the weapon

world.guns.ru...

its a pretty good weapon and very popular and inexpensive. the U.S. military has the LAW but thats not very good as the rpg, and the AT-4 is just a little bit better but good but expensive, and the Javelin is just too big and too much explosive power and too expensive that the grunts in Iraq rarely fire that weapon to be used in urban combat. the military should have made a weapon based on the rpg. it has an advantage and disadvantage, compare to a LAW it is not disposable, which means u have to carry the RPG around u and it aint comfortable. but of course if im out of rounds then i can drop the RPG since i can get another one cheap aniways. also its heavier than the LAW but not too heavy and u don't have to be strong to carry the thing but wen on long range patrols u prefer carrying heavy firepower in a compact light package weapon. still the RPGs advantages outweights the disadvantage. there is the new Predator launcher design for close combat fighting so we see what the military has for the troops.
