On May 28, Libyan sources released a photo showing a soldier of the Libyan National Army (LNA) armed with an advanced RPG-32 anti-tank weapon.

Russia’s Bazalt designed and developed the RPG-32 between 2005 and 2012. The weapon is also assembled in Jordan from Russian-made kits under the name “Nashshab”. This may explain how the LNA has received it.

The RPG-32 can be armed with the PG-32V tandem high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) round that can penetrate 650 mm of rolled homogeneous armor (RHA), or with the TBG-32V thermobaric round for use against the enemy’s infantry and fortifications. Both rounds have a maximum range of 700m.

While the anti-tank weapon is not guided, it can be equipped with a variety of sights for day and night missions and even with a laser-range finder.

The LNA’s Arab backers likely hope the they could counter the growing support of Turkey for the Government of National Accord (GNA) by supplying such advanced weapons.

Looks pretty lightweight. The scope can be tilted after you acquire the range with laser rangefinder? Good for taking out the vehicles that Turkey just sent over. :)

Classic step-by-step creeping escalation.

‘The reusable system allows for the suppression of the enemy with 75 mm and 105 mm ammunition. The [RPG-32] Hashim has an integrated system for multi-level fire using a trigger device and multi-calibre reusable cartridges. Powerful charges are not wasted when overcoming light obstacles in the form of automobiles or house walls. The shaped (105mm) charge penetrates up to 1000 mm of armour, while the 75 mm charge penetrates 500 mm of armour. It weighs 3 kg, enabling the fighter to place the RPG-32 in battle mode within seconds and conduct targeted fire from any position, including using night mode.’
