    Bigshorty - neither, it`s a recoilless rifle. they don`t always work like they are supposed to, and sometimes fail catastrophically. case in point.

    That`s either not a actual RPG or something went horribly wrong. RPGs are recoilless. (Though the flash can knock you out.) I know cause I`ve shot them.

    Still hilarious!

    deanmalenko: recoilless propelled grenade? that doesn`t even make sense.

    an rpg is a rocket propelled grenade. a grenade that is being propelled by way of a rocket. an rpg launcher is recoilless, yeah, but i`ve never heard of "recoilless propelled grenade." anyone have a link on that? google fails to bring up anything... and there`s probably a reason for that :-?

    ...yeah.

    Actually, rocket launchers are recoilless (as previously stated) because the rocket is not sent forward by an explosion, but by an electrical charge, and the rocket itself engages rocketpropelled drive by "fuel" after a certain distance.

    As you can se in the video, without an electrical charge and the "backblow" function, a rocket launcher would be impossible to shoot with.

    I thought an RPG propels a distance from the shooter and then accelerates mid-air, causing the backblast effect. Also, that`s the reason you don`t stand unsupported when firing shoulder-based launchers.

    An RPG launcher is recoilless when operated correctly. The recoil from firing a conventional firearm is due to the equal and opposite reaction of the propelled round pressing against the gun. With a rocket launcher, the back is open, and all that energy goes to hurling superheated air out the back rather than pushing the gun.

    My guess: Back cap was closed or typical Soviet-designed quality control.

    that`s the first thing i think about when hearing RPG

    "Boy, that must have hurt his pride. I mean, his face."

    when it comes to men, pride and face are one and the same

    not a regular rifle, a recoilless rifle. I`m thinking the same thing.

    similar to that.
