General Dynamics MK47 Automatic Lightweight Grenade Launcher

The Light Weight Automatic Grenade Launcher (LWAGL) system represents the first major advancement in crew-served weapon systems since the end of World-War II. 

Integrating the latest sensing, targeting and ballistic computing technology, the LWAGL is a reliable, highly portable 40mm grenade weapon system suited for mobile, tactical combat soldier units. The LWAGL system consists of the MK47 MOD0 40mm Advanced Lightweight Grenade Launcher, LVSII Lightweight Video Sight and MK108 Lightweight Tripod.

Capable of firing all standard NATO 40mm ammunition, and with fully-qualified air burst ammunition capability, the MK47 MOD0 delivers devastating firepower against soft and lightly armoured targets, with unprecedented accuracy provided by the LVSII.
