Hello all, I'm an independent inventor who has several patents, mostly on military technologies. I would like some feedback from soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan whether there is a need for more pointable firepower. For example, I was recently told by a mid-level RAF officer that grenade launchers were fitted to the SA80 rifles in Afghanistan, where engagement ranges of around 5m in jungles were surprisingly common. The grenade launchers apparently are effective even at such short ranges, although he didn't elaborate whether it was because one could shoot someone directly with the 40mm grenade to knock them down (some 40mm grenades have an arming range of 23m), or if you could shoot close to them if the grenade doesn't have a safe arming distance. So may I please ask if soldiers on the ground need more explosive weapons that everyone can equip, are lightweight (no more than 1.5kg), have multiple rounds between reloads, have decent range (say up to 200m) and are direct fire (like LAW, rifle grenades or 40mm grenades, instead of mortars or hand grenades)? Cheers!
