RGS-50M Special Grenade Launching System

RGS-50M Special Grenade Launching System

Description

Depending on the ammunition type grenade launcher RGS-50M can be used for defeating or putting temporarily the manpower and  transport facilities out of action, as well as for breaking glass panels and emergency opening of doors.

As the grenade launcher is a non-automatic weapon, all the procedures  of reloading and taking a shot are performed manually by the  gunner. In this case, the powder gas energy is used just for imparting forward movement to the projectile.
