MOSCOW, July 10 (RIA Novosti)
The Russian Ground Forces expect to receive an advanced grenade launcher soon, force chief commander Col. Gen. Vladimir Chirkin said on Tuesday.
The Grok grenade launcher/flamethrower is currently in development at the Bazalt defense firm.
Grok features include higher accuracy, a longer range and it weighs only a quarter that of the RPG-7V standard-issue grenade launcher.
It also costs less than antitank rocket systems and is just as effective even at a long range.
