I recently learned of a Romanian weapon project, known as the LGEI-99 Snake. It was a 99mm RPG, that employed a countermass system similar to that in the German Armbrust RPG, which allegedly made it very quiet, flashless, smokeless, near-recoilless, and able to be fired from an enclosed space as small as 3m x 3m. The manufacturer was Turbomecanica.

There's also a Jane's article on it, but it seems that the public preview was pulled from their site;

Unfortunately, this the only image I've found is of the rocket itself --- I don't have any idea what the launcher looks like;

This forum thread here has some info on it, in Romanian (it's also where the above photo is located);

I've scoured the internet for YEARS looking for a photo of this weapon, but my Google Fu has failed me. Does anyone have any additional info (or photos!) of the Snake?
