Operator Notes:

One of the best weapon systems ever designed for the US military. The first versions of this weapon were produced and tested in the Vietnam conflict. It has proven very popular. It is now standard issue in every infantry squad in the US Army and Marine Corp. It attaches under the barrel of the M16 or CAR15 weapon. For the M16 rifle there is a different front handguard to fit the M203. Benny Ray has been unable to acquire one of these yet so the M203 that he mounts on the M16A1 uses the top hand guard to protect the shooter from the hot barrel. It's the best he can do until he finds the correct hand guard. He doesn't have this problem with the CAR-15 since its' handguards are shorter and fit under the M203 better. The 40mm cartridge uses a unique high-low pressure system to launch a 1 lb. explosive charge up to 400 meters away without breaking the shoulder of the firer. The round goes downrange so slow that you can follow its trajectory. There are almost an infinite number of ammunition types available for this weapon. Numerous colored smoke rounds (for marking not screening), numerous colored star parachute rounds and numerous colored star cluster rounds are available for signal, illumination and marking purposes. For offensive use there are a number of High Explosive (HE) rounds including an airburst round (which actually bounces off the ground and then explodes). There is also a particular useful High Explosive Dual Purpose (HEDP) round that has some anti-armor capability. The HEDP round can penetrate 5 cm of armor and kill armored cars. It is also just as useful as the basic HE rounds against troops. Generally, the casualty radius for the HE and HEDP rounds is about 5 meters. There are also two types of shotgun rounds for the M203. These are more useful in close quarters or jungle environments when you don't want to worry about bouncing a 40mm HE round off a tree and back into your lap.
