  1. Hi

    I was watching a programme where the 3rd commando brigade were using a 40mm Grenade Machine gun and was wondering if other infantry battalions would have this weapon available or is it only the Royal Marines who specifically use this weapon?


  2. Its been withdrawn from FOBs due to the "Big Bag Of Sweets In An Orphanage" effect*

  3. cool, thanks.
  4. Still in use in Afghan. FSG platoons and some rifle coys have them on Jackals. And let me tell you, they are a good bit of kit :)
  5. Awesome kit, everyone on the ground has it, within reason of course.
  6. It's not that far off.

  7. Fired a few rounds on my H15 D I E training, just lovely.

    Could actually see the rounds going downrange.
