The Czech army was going to find a replacement for the RPG-7

The Czech Republic is looking for a replacement for the Soviet RPG-7 anti-tank grenade launcher, which has been in service with the Czech army for a long time. The Czech Defense Journal writes about it.


According to the newspaper, currently in service with the Czech army are three types of anti-tank grenade launchers. The main hand grenade launcher has long been the "proven reliable Soviet RPG-7". The mechanized units are armed with light disposable RPG-75s of the Czech production, and the Swedish Carl Gustav M3a is in service with the airborne troops and special forces.

The decision to replace the RPG-7 with a more modern anti-tank grenade launcher was made in 2015, the rearmament was to be completed by 2020, but in 2019 it was decided to postpone this task to 2025.

Currently, the replacement of the RPG-7 is not selected, in this capacity, options are being considered for the purchase of German RGW or Swedish Carl Gustav, it is possible to purchase any other grenade launchers.

The country's Ministry of Defense proposes to hold a tender within the framework of which to consider various options for grenade launchers to replace the RPG-7. It is noted that given the standard procurement process, which takes quite a long time, the military department should begin preparing for the tender now.

At the same time, the publication doubts that the purchase of a new weapons nevertheless, it will take place, since the military department is subject to constant political pressure to limit the funds allocated for the acquisition of new weapons. In this case, the time-tested Soviet grenade launcher will continue to be in service with the Czech army.

            Perhaps, almost the only one who during the USSR was a recognized classic of literature and who was not abandoned on the modern outskirts, continuing to consider him a classic - T.G. Shevchenko. So he unambiguously expressed his opinion:

            Yak die, then cheer
            Mene at the grave
            Middle step wide
            In Ukraine mile

            So why the hell do they want more? Or forgot to "fix"?

      Why should the Czech Republic be compared to a banana republic? Czechs can afford excellent things for the price. Why don't you Andrei want to run around with a three or a maxim during the war? RPG-7 is already outdated in many respects. Gustav has 20 types of B / P (with there is a guided missile), the range of a standard shot is 700-1000, UR 1500-2000. Well, how many RPGs?

        And if to the RPG 7 a controlled shot is stirred up. The cars are already on batteries. The shot can be upgraded and modernized. In the military-industrial complex Kulibins are not extinct?

          You can, of course, do everything, remember Andrey a song if you really want to)))) But seriously, the dimensions of Gustov meter (with ammunition). Did you hold an RPG with 7VR in your hands? You don't need to saw power, you need to saw range. Yes, and sights (even NSPUM) are already outdated.

              In this case, you are either joking or confusing tourism with emigration. RPG-7, without increasing the range and accuracy, remains to be the level of the barmaleev. Seven already has a replacement, Hashim, everything depends on money.

        What is the difference in both publications? Both are in the "News" section.
        In terms of the amount of information and the adequacy of its coverage, the material from January 23 - "The Swedish grenade launcher is older, but the RPG-7 lags behind": the Czech Republic intends to replace Soviet weapons. - more holistic and without blunders.

    the acquisition of any other grenade launchers is not excluded.
    Last year they wrote that the United States is planning to release an RPG-7. So they will buy from the Americans the same, but more democratic, which means effective.

    Why did RPG-7 not please them? Such a variety of ammunition has already been developed! And the design allows the ammunition to continue to be improved. One can imagine that over time it will occur to someone to make homing laughing

          Quite, under certain conditions, a mine on the "adapter" in the conditions of the trenches, replaces the mortar.

    There are doubts about replacement, price, quality, ease of maintenance and use.
    They can of course add something. add, replace the optics and fix something else, nothing more.
