Description
The RPG-32 Hashim (called Nashab in Jordan) is a Russian-Jordanian anti-armour (anti-tank) man-portable grenade launcher, while the name "Hashim" is that of the royal Jordanian Hashemite family. The RPG-32 multipurpose grenade launcher was developed between 2005 and 2007 by Russian state-owned FGUP 'Bazalt' organization on request and under contract from Jordan. The RPG-32 is designed to destroy modern tanks of latest types especially those with additional armor shield (Explosive Reactive Armor-ERA). The RPG-32 grenade launcher system boasts well thought-out ergonomics characteristics to ensure rapid loading and high accuracy of aiming, as well as convenience of firing from any position (standing, kneeling, prone). In April 2006, an RPG-32 mock-up was displayed for the first time at the Stand of the Jordanian-Russian Electronic Systems Company during the Special Operations Forces Exhibition (SOFEX). First RPG-32 'Hashim' grenade launchers will be delivered to Jordan from Russia in 2008. In May 2013, the Jordanian-Russian joint venture to produce RPG-32 portable rocket-propelled grenade launchers was announced in Jordan. It will be also manufactured in Argentina for its army and the Marines. In 2010 Russia supplied the RPG-32 grenade launchers to Lebanon.

Design
The “Nashab” RPG-32 consists of a two-piece modular unit: one part is a reusable firing/sighting unit, described as the launcher, and the other is a disposable container holding either an anti-tank or thermobaric round. The RPG-32 grenade launcher is lightweight and compact, its length is 360mm and an empty weight of 3kg. The containers are loaded with two types of rounds: an antitank one with a tandem shaped-charge WH, and an assault one with a thermobaric WH. A set of such containers makes it possible to engage all existing targets: current tanks, armored vehicles, fortifications, infantry located on the battlefield including manpower sheltered in buildings and structures, etc. The antitank round ensures efficient engagement of current and advanced tanks. The assault round WH provides for fragmentary and cumulative effects in addition to the thermobaric one.
