The Russian anti-tank rocket launcher RPG-18 ‘Mukha’ (English: Fly) entered into production in 1971, though it was suspended in the 1990s for its successor, the RPG-22. In its construction and use, the RPG resembles the American US M72. Before firing, the launcher needs to be extended.

It is entirely possible to have a combination of tags beside each country. For example, if country X is tagged with a G and a N, it means that at least one source of data identifies Governmental agencies as holders of weapon type Y, and at least one other source confirms the presence of the weapon in country X with non-Governmental armed groups.
