General Dynamics ATP’s MK47 40mm Grenade Launcher

While at SOFIC 2014, I had the opportunity to visit with General Dynamics. If you’re unfamiliar with the company you really should remedy that because they’re an amazing outfit. They’ve done a lot of work for us in the past and their depth and breath of capabilities is lim(n→∞), or damned near limitless. The MK47 Mod 0 has always been an impressive weapon system but this guy is not your dad’s MK47. The fire control subsystem is highly evolved providing ranging and thermal capabilities along with the standard 300+ rounds per minute of 40mm fire power that includes airburst munitions. Look at it as the XM25 on steroids.
