the rifle part of the oicw is a derivitive of the G 36 but the grenade launcher is developed by american aliance tech but the XM 29 was cancled any way its been seperated into the XM 8 rifle and XM 25 grenade launcher its also 25 rather then 20 m.m.
i supose it is of topic but i just came across it when i was looking for the other pictures and posted it
it is in a way relevent but perhaps worthy of a new thread of its own
ill change the title and maybe more people will check it out
HUm Hum the gun is a recycled g36k. Besides It was part of a german bid for the FELIN and Spectre combat suits (France and UK) that lost for political reasons. Then the concept was offered to DOD with the promise it will be "homegrown".
You can clearly see that it has 2 clips, I circled then in the modified photo I posted. I am not sure this thing really has a grenade launcher, and if it does I donâ€™t think that itâ€™s over 20mm. It could very well be a combo weapon firing 5.8mm X 42mm and 12.5mm X 108mm ammo. The size of the clips and the diameter of the barrel may point to this option.
