Description: The RPG-29 is a portable anti-tank grenade launcher designed to be employed by light infantry against armored vehicles outfitted with Explosive Reactive Armor and other protection systems. It is also capable of taking out fortifications, hardened targets, concrete structures, etc. The weapon system can fire both the PG-7VR and PG-29V 105mm fin-stabilized rockets both equipped with a tandem shaped charge warhead capable of piercing ERA-protected armor as thick as 600 and 750mm respectively. The RPG-29 was employed successfully against the Israeli Merkava tanks in Lebannon and against the US Army M1A2 Abrams and British Army Challenger 2 tanks in Iraq in the 2000s and 2010s.
The RPG-29 offers an extended range over RPG-7 and other portable disposable anti-tank systems such as RPG-26 and RPG-27. Nevertheless, the RPG-29 weapon system requires a two-man crew for effective operation compared to a single man crew on its predecessors. A PG-29V round weighs about 6.7 kg and has a maximum range of 500 meters compared with 200 meters on the PG-7VR anti-tank rocket. The RPG-29 rocket launcher loaded with a single PG-29V weighs 18.2 kg.
