Grenade Launchers

The grenade launcher has evolved from its limited, single-shot dedicated form to become an integral part of the basic infantry squad today.

OVERVIEW



Greande launchers form a special part of the infantryman's toolbox today, capable of providing the squad with ranged, direct and in-direct fire support through the launching of oversized projectiles carrying various warhead types. Early-form weapns were both simple and complex attachments made to the muzzle of service rifles and these graduated to become standalone weapon systems - limited by their single-shot capabilities. The multi-shot grenade launcher arrived in the 1980s and have since become an accepted part of the squad-level kit. A rotating cylinder, containing six or more projectiles, paired with a pistol-style grip at the rear and a foregrip at the front - as well as full shoulder stock for additional support - is the current design standard for global launchers today. A further evolution of the line has seen the introduction of Picatinny rail sections added for supporting tactical accessories.

There are a total of 64 Grenade Launchers in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator. This listing includes Rocket-Propelled Grenade-type (RPG) weapons as well as Under-Barrel Grenade Launcher (UBGL) systems and 'combination weapon systems' integrating a launcher component to a basic assault weapon design (the Heckler and Koch XM29 OICW being a perfect example of this weapon type).
