RAAM

Notes: RAAM stands for Rifle-launched Anti-Armor Munition. It is a bullet-trap rifle grenade with a high-efficiency HEAT warhead using advanced principles. It may be fired from any 5.56mm NATO or 5.56mm Duplex-firing rifle or carbine using an expendable plastic adaptor. Preparing the rifle grenade for use requires 1 phase (5 seconds). It is a rocket-boosted grenade, but the rocket does not fire until the weapon has traveled 10 meters, and there is no danger from backblast.

US Rifle Grenades

Notes: Copied from Israeli grenades, these grenades were adopted by the US Marines in the early 1990s but were never formally approved for service by any other branch of the US military. Despite this, they were used by some formations in Europe and Iran. They require no special adapters and no special ammunition.
