The acquaintance of foreign mercenaries with a grenade launcher of the Ukrainian development RG-1 "Piston" is shown

The Kyiv regime, against the backdrop of heavy losses among the military personnel and the low combat capability of the mobilized, is increasingly relying on foreign mercenaries. The active participation of the so-called "wild geese" in separate offensive operations is already noted. Thus, mercenaries are the main striking force in the ongoing attacks on the Svatovo-Kremennaya sector.


Accordingly, there are more and more shots with militants who arrived for the sake of earning money in the square. One of the videos shows the acquaintance of English-speaking mercenaries with a Ukrainian-made RG-1 Piston grenade launcher.

This product was created at Yuzhmash to equip infantry formations with a less bulky means of suppression compared to the AGS-17. A 30-mm grenade launcher with a gross weight of 12,5 kg is operated by one person and is capable of hitting both manpower (fragmentation shells) and lightly armored vehicles (cumulative ammunition) at an effective firing distance of 800-1000 m. At the same time, VOG acts as the main means of destruction -17, which is also equipped with AGS-17.

Work on the new product has been going on since the early 1990s. RG-1 was first shown to the public in 2014. Work on the project resumed after the outbreak of hostilities in Ukraine in 2014.

      It would not hurt to recall the Baryshev ARGB-85 grenade launcher. Wouldn't hurt our guys at all.

        well, he will have a shorter range, but in any case, it is necessary that each infantry platoon have a couple of AGSs or similar systems for Oporniks

          The recoil is too strong. There is no damper on the butt. So you will let the store out and go to the hospital with a broken collarbone.
          Somehow something does not work with mercenaries. Konashenkov in his reports says that there are no more than 2000 of them left in / in Ukraine. What impact can such a number of people have on the course of the b / a?

          the fact that it does not have range advantages compared to a conventional grenade launcher, yes it is suitable for assault operations, but for the defense of the oporniks you need a grenade launcher that can fire at ranges of 800+ meters and then either put a full-fledged AGS-17, etc., or make an ersatz- versions, at least single-shot, but with the possibility of long-range fire. In fact, this is a replacement for an 82 mm mortar, it is difficult to attack with infantry when the AGS is working on you.

            You have answered every possible question. Install a full-fledged AGS. No ersatz will help. Or a full queue for any distance. Or sheer pain. Neither Baryshev nor this piston can replace a full-fledged AGS. And the Dwarf will be able to do what these crafts can do.

              it all depends on the pace of production .. if a plant can make 1 ags or 000 barrels for an ags, then let it make 2 ags and 000 ersatz.

                  Well, let's start with the fact that we do not have peacetime, but completely military time, so between 1 AGS and 000 AGS + 1 ersatz I will choose the second, since in this case we will get a greater density of fire

                    Do you know about the existence of warehouse stocks ??? Caliber and Iskander are one thing, which have been in service not so long ago and there are no stocks that have been accumulating for decades in warehouses. And let's combine the AGS with a half-century history.

                      given that now they cannot issue night machines in the required quantity, there is no certainty that the required number of AGS is available

      And I don't see the point. At medium distances, AGS is a terrible thing. And this one ... Single shots will not make the weather. They said, they say, such will come in handy for the assault - nonsense, too healthy. Here is the one that the specialists have for three shots - this one is quite a second weapon, but you can’t drag this fool around.
      In short, dead end

    As expected, they will fight not even to the last Ukrainian, but to the last Afro-African mercenary.

    PS The following thought arose: The mobilization potential in American prisons will be bigger than ours. Is it possible to send prisoners to foreign legions, as if to work? After all, they work at home in private firms, without interruption from serving their sentences? Maybe I messed up something, then I'm sorry.

    It is very similar to the Baryshev grenade launcher. The Russian MoD refused it, they seemed to want to release it in Belarus. Most likely it is a copy of it.

      at the beginning of the SVO in a cart, I saw footage using a similar apparatus by some group of the RF MTR in the forest, at night, the apparatus lit up there was similar in configuration to this one, but with a thermal imager it was and did not look as handicraft as this one, most likely not Belarusian and not Russian production, very high quality product judging by the appearance.

    All the same, it is dangerous for the health of a fighter.
    Apparently, therefore, it is not in the production of other countries.
    So, grenade launcher, or AGS.

      In general, it is dangerous for a fighter’s health to fight, and similar devices are being produced in other countries, above I have given an example of a similar device that has lit up in the MTR group of the Russian Federation, judging by its appearance, the product is not experimental, serial, made according to high-quality proven technology.

    At the same time, the VOG-17, which is also equipped with the AGS-17, acts as the main means of destruction.

    And where is our AGS-40 "Balkan"? Is everyone experiencing? request

    The ACS is more practical, which allows you to fire without harm to health.

    The recoil of the Ukrainian grenade launcher is strong, in my opinion our AGS-30 will be more effective.
