Do you think rocket propelled grenades (such as rpg-7) have a use in modern warfare? or is it time for new better weapons resembling these?

They work fine against light vehicles and infantry.. Low tech armies that don’t have access to under slung grenade launchers for their rifles can use it as a substitute.

Modern armies already have better weapons.

RPGs are still effective. In Iraq for example, many Colition soldiers have been killed as the result of RPG attacks.

They are still useful to less advanced armies, and they can still kill people. But modern armys have moved beyonde them.

Unless you've got a strong enough arm to lob a grenade right through cars and light armour vehicles...

They should have a Streaming video out of what a direct hit to a humvee at 200 meters from a RPG. I would want to see the extent of the damage (to tires, to cabin, would it still be drivable etc...) close up shots

Wouldnt see why they wouldnt work, towards small vehicle units and man to man combat.

ive seen videos from iraq made by the insurgents of them shooting RPg's at convoys, the one was a big close up, i mean right down the alley to a street then a bradley passed by and boom, i pretty sure it kept going, never new the end result, big humvees would most likey definately be hammered
