RPO Rocket launcher Booster unit (UB/4) "
RPO Rocket launcher Booster unit, very good condition. (please note you might not get the one in the picture as it is a library picture). The Soviet RPO-A Shmel (Bumble Bee - РПО-А Шмель - реактивный пехотный огнемёт - Шмель) entered service in 1987 and fires a 93mm thermobaric warhead, with an effective range of 1000 metres. It is intended for use on buildings, bunkers and other `soft’ targets and is still in use with more than 15 countries. A thermobaric weapon is a type of explosive that uses oxygen from the surrounding air to generate a high-temperature explosion, and in practice the blast wave typically produced by such a weapon is of a significantly longer duration than that produced by a conventional condensed explosive.
