    In order to unify

    close combat in SSPE "Basalt" in 1999 were developed samples assault weapons RShG-1, equipped with new warheads multifactorial destructive action (RShG - reactive grenade assault).

    In 2000

    RShG-1 successfully passed state tests.

    RShG-1 modular warhead thermobaric warheads - is an individual means of armed soldiers, having a cumulative high efficiency, high-explosive, incendiary and fragmentation simultaneously.

    Its design was first implemented in the world formed in the interaction with the target shaped charge reliably hitting lightly armored vehicles.
    Warhead is patented and has no analogues in the world.

    warhead grenade was borrowed from a grenade TBG-7, and the jet engine - RPG-27.


    assault grenade RShG-1 is a missile with a thermobaric warhead caliber 105 mm (otherwise called "fuel-air explosives") and powder jet engine, fully practiced in the trunk single trigger device. Warhead RShG-1 contains about 1.9 kg of fuel mixture that the fuel-air blowing clouds gives high-explosive effect comparable to undermine 5-6 kg of TNT. Stabilization grenades on the trajectory carried out by means of folding stabilizers and placed by the axial rotation of the garnet.

    In terms Reactive

    assault grenade RShG-1 was created on the basis of the RPG-27. The main difference between RShG-1 and RPG-27 - it thermobaric warhead missiles RShG-1 is designed to deal with lightly armored vehicles, fortifications and enemy infantry.

    This was a high degree of harmonization. In particular, a triggering device to increase the firing range was changed only sighting device.

    trigger device is a pipe-piece fiberglass. The ends of the trigger destructible closed when fired rubber caps.

    To bring into the firing position and the safety pin is removed sights are in the firing position, with cocked trigger mechanism, and can be started by pressing the grenade trigger lever. If necessary, transfer the grenades back to the stowed position the trigger assembly is removed from combat platoon when lowering the rear sight sight in a horizontal position and fixing his linchpin.

    When using the

    RShG-1 with disposable launcher, retaining all the advantages of the basic models, equipped with new warheads multivariate damaging effect and can affect the battlefield sheltered and open manpower, soft-skinned and lightly armored vehicles.

    Implementing these developments became possible only through the use of a fundamentally new approach to the design and production samples. This is, first of all, a block-modular approach product development. It is based on the design and development of production units in a wide range of modules.

    design use grenades universal modules significantly reduced development costs and the serial production. Experts know that when you start a new model in a series of such costs up to 50% of the initial batch at its optimal level (not less than 6000 pcs.). In modern conditions due to lack of funds, this factor becomes a major. Another important feature - ease the process of mastering combat use and operation of new samples troops. Fighter, having skills with RPG-27 can easily be used on the battlefield RShG-1 without special training.

    RShG-1 successfully finished "niche" in the weapon system of ground troops and designed to be used with the greatest efficiency of special forces, intelligence and subversive groups.

    According to experts this pattern weapons by "cost-effectiveness", at the time of creation, equal in the world did not exist.

    In 2000

    RShG-1 was adopted by the Russian army and became offered for export.

    On the mechanism

    impact on the target (the blast and thermal effect of undermining the spray cloud in the air fuel mixture), this is similar to reactive grenade infantry RPO-A, but due to different classification ("pomegranate" and not "flamethrower") RShG- 1 began to come into service conventional infantry units rather than parts of chemical troops flamethrower.
