The glass being at an angle gives it more strength.
Too bad its not a Bazooka but an RPG
the glass being at an angle is also a more realistic test.
dang, that’s good glass. i heard that bulletproof glass loses strength after being exposed to sunlight for a long time, so you have to get it replaced periodically.
I have a bad case of diarrhea.
damn, thats pretty strong glass
dammit bk…didn’t you know you are supposed to be a military weapons expert as well as a web host? lol
could have used some more slow mo demo.
That was proved to be “armless”! xD
lol he missed the glass the second time
is the song used part of a soundtrack or something? (during the slow-mo… otherwise, I know its Matrix…)
pretty cool anyways…
Pretty cool test.
it’s from the movie Van Helsing.
[...] The conclusion is obvious but it’s awesome to watch a barzooka/RPG work in slow motion: RPG versus bullet proff glass. [...]
Just to point out the obvious…
This is not a bazooka being fired it’s an RPG which is a totally different thing.
Just pointing out that it isn’t bulletproof glass either. No glass is truly bulletproof. When you look at the f/s or the m/s differences between a standard assault rifle round and the rpg round, you’ll find that the glass won’t really stand up well to the rifle round. Not to detract from the fact that the glass withstood an RPG-7 round.
Someone actually did this to the M15 (British Secret Service) HQ in London. RPG across the Thames river. Didn’t do anything to the building
Bazooka vs. RPG
The Bazooka was just the U.S. version of a shoulder launched solid fuel rocket propelled granade. Which makes it a RPG, a rocket propelled granade.
Therefore a RPG and a Bazooka are not “a totally different thing”, the RPG used in the video is not a Bazooka, but it is the same kind of weapon, just a little bit newer one, most people think of a RPG when they say Bazooka.
The russian design RPG-7 used in the video is the most common one used until today, but it would be interesting to see the glass perform vs. the M136 (the current implementation of an U.S. RPG, 2 generations after the Bazooka) or the 9P135 (last soviet design shoulder RPG used by several countries untill today).
The music is from Van Helsing.
[...] Here is a link (Video) for a Japanese show touting Bazooka Proof Glass. [...]
Sorry folks but the glass FAILED THIS TEST!
The RPG made a big hole in the glass, clearly visible in the closeup witht the army officer pointing it out.
And in the explosion slowmo you can see the flames first BEHIND the glass, only later also before the glass.
This is because an RPG is built to send an narrow stream of molten metal through the armour to cause havoc inside the tank or building. And that is exactly what is did in this video.
I saw this clip on Digg and thought it was great. Nicely done.
Hate to tell you this - but as far as I can tell - these RPGs were DUDS. When they touch down, all you should see is a blinding light and fairly large smoke cloud. What you actually see in the video is the warhead crushing (rather than detonating), the explosive being expelled in powder form (its pink by the way - that’s one giveaway) and then some time later the explosive cloud ignites (NOT detonates) and you get the little fireball you see in the video. This effect is called deflagration.
All this video shows is that the window can (or cannot depending on your standards) withstand the kinetic energy of the rocket itself. The rocket is probably not even up to its max speed, BTW, since that happens at around the 100m mark and it looks shorter in the video.
No reasonable amount of glass can stop explosively formed the copper jet from one of these things. As it is - the glass in the video didn’t even have to stand up explosive detonation, much less the jet.
