Heckler & Koch for Military & Law Enforcement
Calibre 40 mm x 53 HV
Ammunition box 32 rounds
Maximum effective range up to 1500 metres
Support weapon with large area of effect
The GMG fires belt-linked grenades in 40 mm x 53 calibre with an effective range of up to 1500 metres. Shooting individual rounds is also possible with the GMG. Suitable ammunition types range from fragmentation explosive rounds, battlefield illumination rounds, smoke ammunition for suppressing enemy reconnaissance, flash/bang practice ammunition up to shaped charge warheads used against hardened point and area targets. Using a fire-control system adaptable to the GMG, infrared-programmed airburst rounds can acquire targets behind cover.
In the role of an active self-protection system, the 40 mm high-velocity grenade machine gun is integrated into remote-controlled weapon stations. Under vehicle protection on battle tanks or lightly protected patrol vehicles, target acquisition and engagement is carried out fully electronically from the vehicle cabin by means of operating software. The GMG is also integrated into stand-alone weapon stations, which are predominantly used for object protection.
