A RAM munition is a Rocket Assisted Multi-purpose type of ammunition.

It is progressive development of the Grenade Launcher, the RAM (Rocket Assisted Multi-purpose) grenade launcher fires an assortment of rounds at low velocities (Often less than 900 meters per second).

Many RAM grenade launchers follow the TL-9 tradition of attaching under assault weapons as accessories. They typically carry few rounds and are often single-shot weapons.

Accelerator weaponry often use RAM technology.

RAM grenade launchers are an early step towards the manufacture of viable gyrojet, or rocket-launching weapons. A RAM round is essentially a self-contained self-propelled rocket.
