His Majesty King Abdullah II and Russian Technologies CEO Sergei Chemezov attended the factory’s inauguration.

“The RPG-32 is one of the most advanced weapon systems in the world able of effectively engaging the majority of armored vehicles as well as other military targets,” Chemezov said at the opening ceremony.

The joint venture to manufacture RPG-32 Hashim launchers is located about 20 kilometers northeast of Jordan’s capital, Amman. It has been built and equipped by the Jordanian side, whereas Russia’s Rosoboronexport, part of Russian Technologies, is supplying components for the assembly of the grenade launchers and is overseeing the production process.

The King unveiled the commemorative plaque, toured the assembly line of the “Nashab” and attended a live firing of JADARA’s RPG-32 to illustrate the functions of the weapon, “which is highly efficient in penetrating armoured vehicles and destroy bunkers”, the statement said, adding that another major feature is that it can be fired from semi-confined spaces. “Nashab, which is used by the infantry troops, is prone to improve the combat capabilities of the armed forces.”

The RPG-32 “Nashab” is also expected to be favoured by the armies of the region as it is considered an upgraded version with highly advanced features of previous models of RPGs. The export procedures of such a weapon comply with UN rules in this regard to guarantee the transparency of the process, according to the statement.
