Locally made RPG launcher (Kolkata)

A locally made RPG type launcher along with a Kalashnikov type assault rifle which were found buried in Purulia district, Kolkata. Police reported that the weapons were found at two sites near Khatanga village bordering Jharkhand. Two individuals arrested had links to Maoist rebel groups.

The launcher appears to fire a standard PG7 munition and interestingly appears to use a trigger grip unit identical to those seen on locally made Sterling submachine gun copies, also appearing regularly in Maoist arms caches.

Locally made Sterling SMG copy.

    The AK looking gun is a Mini14 in an improvised stock. The RPG looks like it slamfires like a openbolt smg and doesnt use a propeling charge, it just ignites the rocket motor. The back of the tube is closed which would not work with a propeling charge. I wonder how the range and trajectory change only using the rocket motor.
