Here's the page from Tokoi.

The translation only says that it was developed at the request of the East German police for riot control.

Nice collector item! I corresponded with some DDR vets about this launcher.

It was developed and used by the East German VPKA/VPI and VP-Berietschaften, Interior Ministry Police/Troops similar to Soviet MVD. While regular NVA units fielded the RPG, Volks Polizei units relied on these launchers for heavy weapon support at the squad level.

While never formally adopted by the NVA, in November / December, 1989 some launchers were handed over by the VP to the rocket-technical and weapon-technical service of the NVA for evaluation.

The launchers were used with either irritant gas grenades (RWK-64) and standard blank cartridges or fragmentation grenades (RGD-5) and a special blue-tipped high-pressure blank cartridge.
