MENG just announced a very interesting weapon set in 1/35 scale aimed at all those modeling modern Russian figures and vehicles.
SPS-048 - Modern Russian Individual Support Weapons

The kit is cast in resin and consists of various RPGs, RPG rounds and a machine gun as well. We'll post more info on this release once it becomes available, until then check the images which were posted on MENG's FB page.

This is interesting. I don't know about the usefulness of having the rocket warheads though...perhaps they can be on display at an arms bazaar or displayed in mid-air in flight. The newer tube RPGs should be a very welcome addition to those who want to model modern Russian figures with state-of-the-art LAW weapons besides the RPG-7.

You could have one guy aiming a loaded RPG, and a second guy holding reload projectiles.

Should have made more RPG7 rounds and a backpack but still good to have.

The Russian LAWs are single-shot throwaway rocket tubes with the rocket self-contained inside for firing. I mean it's still good if anyone wants to model (say) an Active Protection System defeating an incoming warhead.
