Do we only have those two choices or are we talking all rocket propelled grenade systems?

And saying r.p.g. are you referring to the soviet r.p.g.?

I would choose a LAW then light anti tank weapon, while it dont penetrate as much armor it is easy to carry easy to dispose of and well I can carry 5-6 laws but only 2-3 r.p.g.s

Peace

Well I would assume you are talking about thr RPG-7 as thats the one we all see everywhere. As a anti tank weapon I dont think the RPG-7 is good at all modern tank armour is so strong they are not much use( but neither is a LAW on a modern tank). Now on something like a Humvee thats a different story.

If cost was a factor Id go with the RPG those things are dirt cheap. But over all I would take a LAW if I had both infront of me and I could only carry one.

I heard that if you do not telescope the LAW "briskly" ,it will not lock,and you have a semi cocked weapon. A problem recruits have.Then the furious range officer must grab hold of the launcher and try to fix and fire it.
Some inexperienced soldiers have been known to fire it or other systems and point it slightly downwards,causing an explosion much too close.

A LAW also has a serious kickback, while an RPG has almost none. This is because the RPG almost carries the rocket instead of launching it like the LAW does.

"I FOUGHT THE LAW AND THE....LAW WON!!!!"

didn't make any tracks about how good an RPG is...

"Do what though wilt shall be the whole of the Law" Book of the Law

LAW IT IS

The LAW is more accurate, while not penetrating nearly as much armor.

I'd go for the RPG

I would start with law. Yeah throw the book at the SOB!!! Then if he is still bothering you hit him with the RPG!!

At least you can then say I tried the justice system and it failed me so here's the RPG!!!!


Oh not that kind of law....

One major advantage the RPG has is the fact that it's reloadable. You have to have an individual LAW for every shot you want to fire, while you only need to carry one RPG and a backpack full of rockets.

The rockets still way in about 20 pounds each i would go for the LAW any time, but any way if i had to choose a anti tank weapon it would be neither.

Aviator... whats with the Nazi cartoon avatar?

I think Aviator's avatar is from the Movie Rocketeer. They had a cartoon in that with German soldiers with rocket packs spreading all over the world.

ShadowXIX is right, it's from The Rockteer. I've been meaning to change the avatar so the swastika isn't visible, as some people find it offensive. Here's a few screens from the propaganda film if anyone cares:

To get back on topic, The RPG warheads weigh 4 lbs each, not 20.
