WatercraftEdit

ISIL has been using a mix of watercraft to transport fighters around the Tigris River and Euphrates River and has been referred to as their unofficial riverine navy.[60]

US forces have come across small watercraft that can ply rivers to carry troops, equipment and some cases as floating IED.[60]

  • barges for transport
  • skiffs
  • motorized vessels

Weapons productionEdit

IS has an indigenous weapons industry. Their workshops can produce identical copies of the RPG-7 and SPG-9. In addition, they have developed an indigenous rocket launcher, which comes in four varieties. Two variants fire PG-9 munitions at short and long range. A third fires PG-7V munitions and the fourth fires an unspecified thermobaric munition. They also produce grenades to be fired from the muzzle of an AK pattern rifle or dropped from a drone. They also produce mortars rounds and rockets.[61] [62]
