Also note safety ring.

 

A stadiametric rangefinder and a front sight in one cheap stamping? Very clever! They seem to be relying on a humvee-sized standard piece of architecture for the rangefinding

#Iraq's special forces are now using launchers made by Da'ish against them. Dozens of launchers have been seized from terrorists in #Mosul.

So do we know yet where exactly these are coming from and/or how they are being made?

No, we don't. Even when numbers of those RPGs were captured, we still don't know how rocket even looks like.

Could the odd jet of smoke that flies off to the right be an ERA brick detonation?

 

 

 

No, it is TOW HEAT warhead jet. I like how now every Syrian Army tank is either T-90 or T-62M.

New Ukrainian RPG by Lych, with ballistic calculater build-in into optical sight.

   The firing range of the portable rocket launcher ranges from 70 m to almost 2 km, and the range of a direct shot reaches 600 m. The use of the new opto-electronic sight automates and simplifies the operation of the shooter, ensuring high accuracy of hits at maximum range of fire.

SMAW-T

   Successfully proven in combat for over 20 years, our engineering team continues to perfect the design and functionality of the SMAW-T launcher by adding greater capabilities such as laser range finder and thermal weapons sight.
   The SMAW-T is a reusable, reliable, lightweight shoulder launched weapon with an advanced fire control system and an integral day/night sight. The system combines the Anti-Structure Munition (ASM) capabilities of current SMAW warheads with a high reliability electronic fuze and fire-from-enclosure (FFE) propulsion system. This means the SMAW-T can be fired from a confined space or building as the back blast from the current SMAW will be significantly minimized.

   M141 BDM

   Lightweight and rugged, the BDM is airdrop certified and single Soldier transportable. The high explosive dual purpose (HEDP) rocket has a devastating impact on enemy targets. Penetrating concrete structures, light armored vehicles, fortified caves and urban construction.
   The HEDP rocket detonates immediately upon impact of hard targets while the built-in fuze delay allows for deeper penetration before detonation when hitting soft targets. The BDM launcher includes a mounting bracket for quick attachment and removal of sights such as the AN/PVS-4 night sight, AN/PAQ-4 or AN/PEQ-2 laser aiming lights or similar devices with rail grabber attachment.

@Collimatrix, some bits of information on ISIS-made RPGs was posted on otvaga. Here is it:

Claims suggest that there is 3 types of RPGs, with differences inside.

Silver is AT

Green are HE-Frag.

 

Also it is claimed that they use SPG-9 grenades.

@Collimatrix, even more from otvaga. Looks like ISIS released short video about their RPGs and it appears that they have 4 versions of this RPG.

 

3 types next to each other, as you can see they have different sizes:

Gorka and M4, lol.

   Short green, short yellow, long green and long metal. Yuri Lyamin thinks that rumors about one of them using SPG-9 can be true, but becuase there is 4 versions, ISIS have to use more than just SPG-9 rockets.

This is really remarkable.  There must be a factory, somewhere in ISIS-stan that is fairly large and well-equipped for converting these PG-9 warheads into these AT-4 look-alikes.

 

I wonder what rocket motors they are using?

It looks like they're using a normal rechargeable drill in a highly static sensitive environment. I approve of this

 

 

Jihad design bureau technicians are afforded ample opportunity for martyrdom, the same as their brothers fighting in the front lines.
