Portable, shoulder-fired armor-defeating weapons have been a staple of Russian military units since the dark days of World War 2 (1939-1945). Technique and technology both evolved during the Cold War decades which produced a variety of such weapons in the "RPG" mold, generally firing a rocket-propelled armor-defeating grenade. These weapon systems have proven utterly reliable, effective and easy-to-operate / train on, making them a popular choice for guerilla fighters able to get their hands on the weapons.

The RPG-28 fits this same mold - it is a shoulder-fired weapon designed to be carried and fired by a single individual with effectiveness against armored targets and fortified positions. The launcher unit sports integrated optics for sighting targets at range and is wholly disposable once the rocket has been fired. It can be carried by a single infantryman or mounted on a tripod assembly for ambushing passing armor. The launcher comes preloaded with the projectile which weighs 12 kilograms and features spring-loaded fins for stabilized flight to the target. The rocket has an effective range out to 300 meters with penetration against 1,000mm of Rolled Homogeneous Armor (RHA).

Design work on the RPG-28 was handled by the State Research and Production Enterprise and Bazalt and both are involved in its ongoing production (since 2008). The RPG-28 series was introduced in late-2011 and currently (2017) sees service with the Russian military. It is known as the "Klyukva" - or "Cranberry".
