40 mm MOAB.

Thats got to be the only chance to make something effective out of the little 20 and 25mm grenades. But its still probably too little payload. Is this for M203 or for Mk19?

Army's quoted as intending to perfect a 25mm round for the XM307 (crew served 25mm., its i the art. above) Would love to see those "mini"s work, I doubt they will, but hey you never know, the 5.56mm wasn't well received either. S2

Do a search on Fuel Air Explosives. The Russians called them 'vacuum bombs' as they would suck the contents out of a cave if detonated at the opening. This little round works on the same principle, dispersion of secondary payload with delayed ignition. Depending on the payload used, it would be a snap to make it fit the 25 mm, work with the FAEII payload material every day, rather familiar with the characteristics Indeed a nasty present, as very little overpressure is needed to do serious damage
