The RPG-28 is a Russian handheld anti-tank rocket launcher.

History

The RPG-28 was unveiled in 2007 at IDEX Abu Dhabi by the State Research and Production Enterprise, Bazalt as a modern anti-tank rocket launcher designed to defeat modern and future tanks with advanced reactive and composite armour as well as fortified infantry.[1]

Description

The RPG-28 shares a close resemblance with the RPG-27 in that it is a portable, disposable anti-tank rocket launcher with a single shot capacity. The RPG-28 has a larger diameter round than the RPG-27 which enables the RPG-28 to achieve higher armour penetration performance. The round is a 125-mm tandem shaped charge with a weight of 12-kg and a range of 200 meters. The round has a stated penetration capability in excess of 1000-mm RHA (after ERA) and 3000 mm of brick.[2]

RMG variant

The RMG is a smaller, multipurpose variant of the RPG-28 that is optimized for defeating light vehicles and infantry in cover. As a result, its penetration performance against tank armor is reduced.
