W3300-AGL

The W3300-AGL Is an automatic grenade launcher with remote operation capabilities intially introduced in YE 33. The sturdy design has remained in service for almost a decade, and has seen service with Nepleslia, Yamatai, and Uso's Star Organization.

About the W3300-AGL

The W3300 is a sturdy design that can be mounted on vehicles or used as a crew serviced weapon.

Triggers and an AwesomeCorp DataJockey on the rear of the weapon allow for manual operation, or the weapon can be remotely operated by using sensors in the the optics pod on the side. The servos that move the weapon are built into the top of the weapon’s tripod and are not actually part of the weapon itself.

A small number of the weapons were purchased by the Yamatai in YE 33, and copies of the design were later produced by Uso's Star Organization starting in YE 40.

Weapon Mechanisms

Battery The weapon is powered by a pair of Na-IPS32 stored in the weapon's camera pod
Camera Located in a pod above and to the side of the weapon, this camera provides the weapon’s operator with a view of what is in front of the device and can zoom up to 300x
Datapad Located on the rear of the weapon just in front of the triggers. This AwesomeCorp DataJockey provides all the computation power for the weapon and serves as the primary interface for setting the fuses on the weapon’s projectiles.
Iron Sights: Standard iron sights, intended for users who prefer manual operation.
Rangefinder Located in a pod above and to the side of the weapon, the laser range finder is used to determine distance to a target. The weapon relays this information to the operator for use in fuse setting.
