7.65 (32 ACP) SUB-CAL. M.75

This cartridge was designed as a training variant for the RPG-75 68 mm rocket launcher that is designated RPG Cv-75 (Cv = Cvičný). The training cartridge is designated “7,62mm Zaměřovací vz.75” (7,62-Zm75) and it is loaded with a tracer bullet that is based on the same design as the short range tracer bullet loaded in the 7.62x45 VZ-52. There is also an earlier prototype from 1974 designated “7.65 mm Pistole Zaměřovací” (7,65 Pi-Zm). When this round first appeared outside the Iron Curtain, it was thought to be some sort of special loading for the Škorpion vz. 61 machine pistol.
