The Texas-based AirTronic USA Company is supplying grenade launchers to Ukraine, Voice of America reported Nov. 22.
PSRL grenade launchers made by AirTronic USA are deadly weapons. However its accuracy depends on the distance to the target and is rather small, being at 1,000 meters. That is why the US government claims it to be a purely defensive weapon, VOA said.
PSRL is a modernized version of the Soviet RPG-7 launcher.
“We started the deliveries of SPRLs to Ukraine last year. We are working in close cooperation with the US state department, Pentagon and Ukraine government,” the company director Richard Vandeever told VOA.
