DRAGO (DirectRangeAirConsumingOrdnance) Round =

Upon impact with the target, the firing pin is driven in to the detonator, which in turn initiates the spit back charge, producing a jet which initiates the explosive train from the base forward, resulting in an armor-piercing jet of molten metal and fragment pattern and the Thermobaric effect of the EBX compound.....

That was in the movie Predator (previous version anyway) see LINK

Arnold Schwarzenegger's team used this multiple grenade launcher to go alien-hunting in "Predator" -- and now, Milkor has launched an improved, even more devastating version.

but the movie came out in 1987

why so long to put into service ?

The HuntIR round is a parachute round with a video camera

Let's see an RPG-7 do that..............................

Looks like they have a 40mm that can be used as an anti-armor weapon, an increased pwoer anti-personnel weapon, with recon capability. Up to 6 rounds at a time......................

WOW

For what one of those grenade launchers cost, a guy could field a LOT of RPG-7's. Most likely more than enough to make the inferior technology and sophistication a purely academic discussion.

That's not to say that the new weapon is subpar or should be abandoned.. Just an interesting cultural comment.

You'd need 6 RPG-7's...................... Ammo is easier to carry, and no backblast.

Do those things really need adjustable stocks? Its not like they're going to be used in CQB. I've never shot a 40mm, but I would guess there is a lot more recoil than a 5.56 - will an adjustable stock handle that kind of recoil for long?
