charlesbianalthough RPG doesnt stand for rocket propelled grenade even today...

Yeah, I don't know where AmeriKans got the name from...

RPG is the Russian acronym of "Ruchnoy Protivotankovy Granatomyot" (Ручной противотанковый гранатомёт, РПГ) and is translated into English as "handheld antitank grenade-launcher" The commonly used term "rocket-propelled grenade" is a mistranslation, backformed from the acronym RPG and does not follow correct naming conventions used by English speaking militaries to describe these weapons.

First, your WRONG RPG stands for Role Playing Game. Lol i had to do that.:D Second, who cares about correct names or not. Would you be caring about the name of the gun you just got shot by in RL:0wned: ? No? Ah you would be concerned about being shot and getting medical care, ok.:rolleyes:

maybe it would matter if you were wearing a very thick sweater and the paramedics couldnt see the gunshot wounds, just the blood, and didnt know if you got shot by a delayed release acid gun, a regular bullet, or shot by a gopher launcher who burrows into your skin and starts making a den

gewehr is actually pronounced Gevehr.
