The weapon has a maximum range of 700 metres. However, the antitank projectile has an effective range of 300 metres and can penetrate up to 650 mm of Explosive Reactive Armour. The RPG-32 can fire a thermobaric ammunition at distances up to 600 metres and for training purposes it can fire a submunition. However, the Jordanian Army has a simulator for enclosed training.

Both the missile casing and the launcher are made of polymer plastic. The life-cycle of the launcher is 200 firings and after that it can be inspected by the manufacturer in order to assess the extra number of ammunition it can fire.
