Improvised RPG launcher


Found in Iraq, possibly some sort of RPG, missile or grenade launcher. Object below is a RPG-7 to give idea of size. What is it, where is it from, and what does it shoot?


Looks like someone’s homemade PVC RPG launcher. If actually factory-made, I’d look towards Iran.


Yes, I also go with homemade. But why Iran???


Iran has supplied considerable aid to Hizbollah, Hamas, and various Shia insurgent groups in Iraq. Much has been in the form of techniques to produce simple and effective weaponry in small workshops, with local materials. That launcher, made in Iran or Iraq, fits the bill.


For those who are interested here the Iranian ordnance manufacturer’s website (DIOMIL):
