Some guys decided to see if 400 mm thick armored glass would stand up to an RPG-7...

Video here

It's in Russian, but the English subtitles are readable.

Take it from someone who was on the losing end of one. It a devastating weapon.
I can only imagine, like the ak its simplicity and effectiveness has kept it around along time. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one. I wonder how accurate they are, or if they are kinda like the ak, good enough to get the job done.

I think someone will need to event force field to put big a big window in a tank.

Also we now know that the fancy bullet proof cars and SUVs are not RPG proof.

I'm pretty sure those were hollow points!
Actually they are! There is a cone of copper inside the warhead that inverts and turns molten, that is the "blast" of fire that comes out through the glass and "injures tankman." It's how they work, injecting molten copper inside tanks.

RPGs are so cool in slow motion video, how the tube kicks out the rocket, THEN the rocket motor comes on propelling it down range.

Mythbusters did a whole segment on them.
