Handheld weapon systems
New handheld weapon systems for military requirements
In today’s conflict scenarios such as asymmetric warfare or military operations in urban terrain there is a need for precise handheld weapons, which are designed to meet the various demands of the infantry. Besides the high accuracy properties such as ease of handling, high reliability and a low weight are the most important features of modern handheld weapon systems. Having these circumstances in mind DND realized a new concept for a family of handheld weapon systems. Our rich technological experience from previous weapon developments, such as the very successful Panzerfaust 3 handheld weapon family (Pzf 3), combined with combat experiences from many users have led to the development of the compact size family of RGW 60- and RGW 90 (RGW = Recoilles Grenade Weapon).
