The Milkor rep told me that there are currently about 250 of these in Iraq with the Marines, and that several other nations, including Australia, are looking at them as well.
He said that the accuracy is surprising and that they’re getting head shots at 150m. With a grenade launcher. Part of that accuracy is due to the electronic targeting system automatically compensating for the left-hand downward spin.
The current model weighs in at about 15 pounds, fully loaded, but that the next generation units will be about 10 pounds.
Many Marine squads are using the M32 in place of the SAW gunner.
Kind of makes you wonder about the XM25, huh? I haven’t heard anything about that for quite some time.
