RgrBouchOnly if the grenade hit the tank at the proper angle, if the shaped charge did not hit head-on, its effects were limited. The problem is that in game, it always has maximum effect if you hit the tank at all. I think it should have more random damage (to represent it not hitting at the right angle), or limiting the # on map with pickup kits.
If it were real life you would throw it up over the tank so the grogue streamer coming out the back would stabilize it so it landed face down.
Unless FH finds a BF1942 animation Shaman to do the animations doesnt look like we will get the streamer.
OhioanI think its a bit strong. You can kill a Panther in 2 hits to the side.
As mentioned above the RGP-43 can penetrate 75mm of armor, Panthers had 40mm side armor. 2 shots to the side seems reasonable.
I guess was intentionally made more effective than in real life to give the russian inf something to counter bigger tanks, since all other big nations have 'em (Faust, Bazooka, PIAT).
If you're in a tank and you let an RPG guy close enough to hit you then you are doing something wrong. (This is not to say that I haven't made this mistake . . . . . )

The canvas streamer did not guarantee that the grenade would hit head first, that was its purpose, but it did not guarantee optimum performance. The grenade was problematic and the russians found that the grenade worked best when detonated at distance from target equal to the diameter of the grenade. A cone was added an became the RPG6. All that I am saying is that it should not penetrate 75mm on every throw, since canvas streamers do not, and did not guarantee a pefect throw and 75mm of penetration ever time.

Ahh I really like this weapon. Very strong, but it also has a very limited range unlike Bazooka and it's counterparts and AT Rifles. It's just fine now as it has it has both strenghts and weaknesses.
