The GMG (short for Granatmaschinengewehr, meaning "Grenade Machine Gun") began as a private venture by Heckler & Koch around 1992 and began trials with the Bundeswehr (German Army) in 1995. It is also referred to as the GMW or GraMaWa (short for Granatmaschinenwaffe).

Technical DescriptionEdit

The GMG is an air cooled, belt-fed, API blowback-operated grenade launcher fed from 32-round link belts.

The feed on it uses NATO-standard disintegrating belts from either side, which can easily be set up and can be mounted on a special tripod or on the U.S. M3 tripod through a proprietary softmount that includes spade grips and additional trigger, shoulder rod, and sight mounts.
