    I wish we could wipe them out just for looking like assholes.


    Love the pic of the guys sitting in the rocket or missile.

    If you correct me, you are a homo.

    ROCKET propelled grenades don't have much of a recoil because well.... they are propelled by a rocket. The propulsion is not based on the same principle as that from a gun. They start from a resting state and the rocket fires. All of the energy in the opposing direction goes out the hole in the back of the tube and doesn't get transferred to the tube. That's why we get all of those hilarious videos of some asshole standing behind a guy firing one and he gets blown over.

    Is that one of those things, sometimes also a little race car or locomotive,that they used to have in front of a store where mom puts a quarter in it and it rocks back and forth for a minute? How cute.

    Yep. There is some felt recoil, but not much.

    Last I heard, they had gotten some parts from other countries, but had mostly resorted to cannibalizing parts from other planes.

    What's with the motorcyclists having a pouch that says "Do Not Drop"?

    Still, firing an RPG from a motorcycle isn't too smart. Even if the motorcycle is for quick deployment, you're probably going to be mowed down because they'll hear you coming from a mile away and you'll be exposed with zero armor.

    You laugh?? That guy could flip right over you and slit your throat from behind - assuming you stood still and let him do so.
