Default War movie RPG shootout

What's that movie that someone shouts "R-P-G!" and it hits a wall just beside a soldier. Is it Black Hawk Down?

I'm pretty sure it's "Black Hawk Down" he's referring to.

Weirdly, I don't think the term "RPG" was really too common in either the popular lexicon or in movies until around the time "Black Hawk Down" came out. I think it's literally the first movie where I ever heard somebody call an RPG an RPG (instead of just "rocket launcher").

Well I think for dialogue, shouted "RPG!" would roll off your tongue and is shorter than saying "ROCKET LAUNCHER!"

Yes, it's Black Hawk Down.

On a funny note, the very first time I saw that I thought he said "R-V-D!"
