With the RKG-3 can we increase its damage so 2 or 3 could take out a Stryker.  These are armour piercing grenades, and considering how close you have to get to them you should get rewarded with the hit.

According to the data sheet, the RPG-7V tandem charge can defeat 64mm of armor with the precursor charge, and 105mm with the main shaped charge.

 

The RKG-3 can penetrate armor of varying thickness dependent on the version used, anywhere from 150mm-220mm.

 

So, it may be fair for it to do more damage to the Stryker, or in general. I think it should 1 hit HMVs but that's my own opinion.

Yes, the RKG-3 was one of the biggest threats in Iraq.  

With the concave design it punches a copper ball straight through armor and creates a huge heat blast.  

I've seen guys who's arms had massive blisters from severe burns just from being near it going off.  

It was a daily threat briefed to all gunners before missions.  

RKG-3's are no joke and will destroy a vehicle.  Killing or maiming the occupants.

Agreed. Yesterday i had to throw 3 AT-nades to TRUCK until it blew up...  (yes they were all spot on shots to empty enemy vehicle, and no it wasn't near repair station).

1 AT-nade should be enough destroy Humvees and anything below., 2-3 for Strykers.
