The RPG-26 was the last RPG to adopted by the Soviet military before the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. The RPG-29 is a shoulder-launched, unguided, tube-style, breech-loading anti-tank rocket system designed to be carried and used by a single soldier. Its range is 500m.

This is not the first time when militants showcase RPG-26 launchers. Such weapons were repeatedly shown by militants operating near the city of Aleppo. Some of them can also be obtained on the black weapon market in Greater Idlib. These facts could serve as another confirmation of reports about illegal weapon trade that involve various forces operating in this part of Syria.

        Widespread use throughout Syria since 2012, so sorry if I don’t get the urgency to write an article like this.

  2. truth has no comparable power says:

    Look at them … how foolish they are..
    What Russia did to them is just a drop in sea.
    Their chances to actually achieve anything against Russia are 0.00001% ..in 1 word nothing they can do to Russia or Iran or Syrian army.
    They should go and fuck themselves to Saudi Arabia if they want to live under sharia laws..
    And as well they should never try to reach Europe. Europe doesn’t want them, I dont want this scum of the world’s living and death..neither God will not open the gates for them. Killing for satanic belief, destroying entire country for their fuck up religion..

    So what?
    What is there to be “surprised” from, in so many years of war?!?
    Majority of weapons are of Soviet , Russian origin because less expensive, more reliable thuss MUCH BETTER than Western fancy crap that often doesn’t work in dust and desert.

    1. d'Artagnan says:

      Soviet and now Russian weaponry is sturdy, easy to maintain and far better suited for asymmetrical wars. US weapons in particular are over-priced and low quality pieces of detritus.

      1. Z.P. says:

        OK
        your English is so much better than mine.
        Basically we say the same, except you sound much, much more fluent, literate.
        I don’t even know what “detritus” is.
        Sounds Latin.
        OK I saw the answer, thanks internet…now I know.

        1. d'Artagnan says:

          Russian weapons are also cheaper and most Arab and developing world nations in Asia and Africa have used them since the Soviet era.Even the US special forces prefer Russian small arms like the AK and even MI-17 helicopters in Afghanistan. The M-16 jammed frequently in Vietnam and the AK-47 ruled the day.

          1. Z.P. says:

            I know …but I do appreciate hearing that from you.

          2. d'Artagnan says:

            Thank you and please do keep posting here, your comments are intelligent and your English is fine.

            zp is a bellicose troll out to disturb the pace and rhythm in the comments-field. you’re better off without him! believe me.

          4. Z.P. says:

            Thanks for my English I do serious doubts.
            I will pretend that I believe you that you are not trying only to be polite.
            As for “intelligence”.
            I am getting involved in too much empty,futile conversations and that doesn’t even have resemblance of intelligence.

    2. Selbstdenker says:

      The info is about the type of weapon. RPG 29 has a war head, which contains two charges to overcome reactive armor, and it therefore capable to destroys tanks equipped with reactive armor.

      1. Z.P. says:

        Funny that!
        I thought that Soviets and Russians produced only good looking weapons so that some Hollywood twat can show off in some stupid movie.
        I never thought that they even intend to use them…

  4. d'Artagnan says:

    Turkey and Saudi Arabia with their CIA masters as buyers have been procuring large amounts of old Soviet era weaponry for their terrorists. It is same model that was used in Afghanistan in the 1980s. This should hardly come as as surprise. Turkey has also shifted 2,000 of these Salafist terrorists to Libya. The 35,000 barrels of oil stolen from Syrian eastern oilfields by the US is paying for these weapons both in Syria and Libya now.

    1. Agent Moscovite (Not Besieged) says:

      Nah dude, Qatar is paying for the Libyan operation.
