Russians develop new antitank rocket launcher [RPG]-30 with decoy
The Russians have developed a new RPG with an extra adon. A smaller rocket that is fired just ahead of the main grenade.
This smaller rocket is engaged by the tanks reactive armor and TROPHY system while the main grenade traveling milliseconds behind passes through the
tanks defenses unharmed.
The "decoy" rocket and "main" rockets reach the same target at a fraction of second interval.
The "decoy" rocket has 2 roles:
It blows away existing ERA before the arrival of the main rocket.
It gets active/reactive anti-tank systems like ARENA and TROPHY to engage the decoy rocket before the arrival of the main rocket. The decoy will be
destroyed but the main rocket has tandem warhead to penetrate the ERA that has not been blown away in this case.
