    there is a pressure sensor on the front of the rpg, which activates a shaped charge and spears though metal in front of it.

    it does not explode as much as penetrate an armored target.

    unless the fuse is defective it will go off and damage anything in-front of it.

    Aren't those things designed to explode?
