Discharge Information

Ammo type: 40mm or 30mm chemically propelled ammunition.

Firing Mechanism: Ammunition is loaded through an underside breach by sliding open the chambering tube. The tube is then slid back into place, thus cocking the weapon. When the trigger is pulled, the ignition hammer comes down upon the shell or propellant, while producing a high intensity piezoelectric spark which comes into contact with the shell or case-less propellant. The spark and impact ignites the chemical propellant, releasing heated gas which propels the projectile from the launcher.

Visual Description


Due to the Lorath's frequent encounters with potential hostile situations versus SMX and rogue Yamataian armors, the Lorath have decided to develop a grenade launcher system to allow for infantry level troops to have an edge against infantry, and to be able to engage enemy armors if the need to do so were to arise.
