I first blogged about the 40mm Deuce grenade launcher late last year. I was able to handle it at Sage’s SHOT boot and was quite impressed with it. The weight and height is not much more than a single barrel launcher and the width is, of course, the same. According to the company, on average a solider need 1.4 grenades to achieve an objective1 (be that taking out a target, blasting down a wall, etc.), this means that, on average, a reload is needed with a single shot like the M320 or M203. The downside of the system is that is is too bulky to mount under a M4.
To my mil readers, let use know what you think of the 1.4 average statistic ↩
