The Grok grenade launcher/flamethrower is currently in development at the Bazalt defense firm. FSUE SRPE Bazalt is Russia’s leading manufacturer of all kinds of unguided aerial bombs, mortar shells projectiles of all types and calibers, antitank grenade launchers and antisaboteur grenade launcher systems, hand offensive and defensive grenades.

Grok features include higher accuracy, a longer range and it weighs only a quarter that of the RPG-7V standard-issue grenade launcher. Currently the Russian armed forces use more than 20 different versions of anti-tank rocket/grenade launchers, the new Grok could replace all this weapons systems.

It also costs less than antitank rocket systems and is just as effective even at a long range.
