Welcome to the forum, T, how about heading over to the Welcoming Center and giving us an introduction?

And in the future, please include all of your information in a single post rather than posting three back-to-back.

I heard that a Swiss ammo comany called RUAG has built a warhead for the RPG 7 that can pierce tanks

and the strange thing is, that the Swiss army doesn't even have those types of RPG's..........

I'm from Switzerland and my oldest cousin is working as a weapons and ammunition specialist in the swiss army. They had to test those warheads before they went into mass production. They had an empty M1A1 hull and the RPG went straight thru it.
Although the warhead was a success, the army didn't have enough RPG 7 Launchers and so they sold the remaining warheads to a country with RPG 7 Launchers. Now those jerks in Iraq have them and they problably can't tell the difference between the piercing ones and the regular ones.
It's a shame to live in a country that helps terrorists to kill americans

OK, we are gonna need a source for that. A Sagger ATGM cant go "straight" throogh a M1A1, and the AT-3 is a bit more powerful than any RPG. Other than that, who told you those Warheads arrived into Iraqi hands?

The RUAG ammunition company is selling weapons to Iraq since the first war down there. Also a Swiss news magazine printed an article about how many weapons "disappeared" during transports and were found in the hands of terrorists in some eastern countries.
A Sagger ATGM or an AT-3 certainly is stronger but those are 5 ft rockets, a RPG is easier to carry or hide and that makes the warhead for the RPG 7 dangerous.

My point was that if a modern MBT can take a full on hit by a Sagger, there is low probability that any RPG will do more damage. Im asking again for a source.
