Wikipedia has an article on:

Rocket Launchers are any devices that launch a rocket-propelled projectile, although the term is often used in reference to mechanisms that are portable and capable of being operated by an individual.

These weapons utilizes a mechanism that sends the rockets flying on a determined path and destroys an objective by blowing up in a similar fashion to grenades.

On the Grand Theft Auto series, Rocket Launchers are a mean to take out large groups of enemies and destroying vehicles, but very slow and harming for inexperienced players. Being hit by a rocket usually means either an instant death or, in the case of HD Universe games, a serious harm that would send the player to "fly" and are usually dead uppon hard impacts.
