Watch an RPG-28 shell penetrating a reinforced concrete bunker

The Russians are masters of the handheld anti-tank rocket launchers. A handheld RPG-28 Klyukva (Cranberry) is one of the deadliest weapons of this type on the market. The Russian Zvezda media network has released a test firing video of the RPG-28. The test featured the RPG-28’s shell easily piercing through a reinforced concrete wall two meters thick.

“The shock wave was so powerful that we could hear the tremble of the bunker from where we watched the test. Also, a car alarm system was set off a few kilometers away due to the grenade launcher firing,” journalists said.

The RPG-28 Klyukva is first unveiled in 2007, and since then it has become one of the primary handheld anti-tank rocket launchers designed to defeat modern and future tanks as well as fortified infantry with advanced reactive and composite armor. It is a portable, disposable anti-tank rocket launcher with a single shot capacity, closely resembles the RPG-27.

The overall weight of the loaded weapon is 12-kg. The RPG-28 has a larger diameter round which allows it to achieve higher armor penetration performance. The grenade launcher’s round is a 125-mm tandem shaped charge with a range of 300 meters. It’s one of the deadliest weapons for the armor.
