The recently appeared footage shows that the Syiran army started to use AGS-17 Plamya(Flame) grenade launchers in clashes with Jaish al-Fatah militants in western Aleppo.
The AGS-17 Plamya’s caliber is 30 mm. Its effective firing range is 1,700 m. The Russian-supplied weapon (often installed on the technical vehicle) is one of the reasons that allow the government forces to keep a fire superiority over the militants during the ongoing clashes for Aleppo city.
