The RPG-18 Mukha (Муха, fly in English) is a Russian rocket launcher.

HistoryEdit

The RPG-18 was a rocket launcher developed by Bazalt in the 1970s. It was used from 1972 to 1990 by the Soviet Union, and has mostly been replaced by the similar RPG-22 Netto.

Design DetailsEdit

The RPG-18 looks very similar to the M72 LAW by Nammo. As the RPG-22 was developed from the RPG-18, the RPG-22 looks very similar to the RPG-18.

AmmunitionEdit

The RPG-18 uses the PG-18 round, a 64mm shaped HEAT warhead. The round has a stated penetration capability in excess of 300 millimeters (11.8 inches) of rolled homogenous armor or 375 millimeters (14.8 inches) of conventional armor. With a VP-18 fuze, the round has a stated penetration capability of 500 millimeters (19.7 inches) of concrete and 1000 millimeters (39.4 inches) of brick.
