Sapphire – Accurate and Dangerous Weapon

The RPG Sapphire multipurpose grenade launcher system will be presented at the 10th International Exhibition of Arms and Military Equipment MILEX-2021, which will be held on 23-26 June 2021 in Minsk (SFTUE Belspetsvneshtechnika stand).

The system is a lightweight rocket launcher with an unguided grenade equipped with a multipurpose warhead and a digital fire control device that can significantly improve the fire accuracy and reduce the cost of ammunition. The Sapphire is designed to fight against modern main combat tanks and armoured, light armoured and soft targets. It can strike enemy fighters wearing individual armour or sheltered in pillboxes, earth-and-timber bunkers, light field emplacements, urban and rural facilities. The dimensions and weight of the system allow the soldier to move easily along the connecting trenches and load into any military vehicles.

The grenade launcher particularity is the ability to fire from small-sized closed compartments. In terms of efficiency, the developed complex of 60 mm caliber is not only inferior to the heavier samples of 90-105 mm calibre, but also qualitatively surpasses them at a sight shooting distance.

RPG Sapphire technical specifications:

Calibre – 60 mm

Weight – 4 kg

Length – 750 mm

Direct shot range – 150 m

Maximum sight shooting range – 400 m

The maximum firing range – 1,000 m.
