What does RPG mean?

A Rocket-propelled Grenade(RPG) is a shoulder-fired, anti-tank weapon system which fires rockets equipped with an explosive warhead. These warheads are affixed to a rocket motor and stabilized in flight with fins. RPG is a transliteration of the Russian РПГ or ручной противотанковый гранатомёт (transliterated as “ ruchnoy protivotankovy granatomyot” ), which translates to the English phrase “hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher” . Thus rocket-propelled grenade is a backronym rather than a translation.
