M91/30 rifle with VPGS-41 Rifle Grenade.

The VPGS-41 (Vintovochnaya protivotankovaya granata Serdyuka, "Rifle Anti-Tank Grenade designed by Serdyuk) was a Soviet anti-tank rodded rifle grenade. It used a 334 g shaped charge that allowed to penetrate 30 mm (40 mm with an improved version of the grenade) of armor in a range up to 70 m. The launching rod was inserted into the barrel of Mosin Nagant M1891/30 rifle without any kind of launcher or adapter, as it was with WWI era rifle grenades. VPGS-41 was a stop-gap solution, it was put into service in October 1941, and already in Spring 1942 its production was discontinued due to insufficient armor penetration and firing range, a large number of accidents and the damage that the steel rod caused to the rifling.
