LG6, Norinco's latest man-portable 40mm automatic grenade launcher

This new LG6 fires the standard 40x46mm caliber grenades and has a 300 rounds per minute rate of fire about to a range of 400 meters.

LG6 is light weight, which is 4.8kg without ammo.  Other automatic grenade launchers are heavier thus  requires to be mounted on vehicles or move by weapon crew with biped/tripod before they can be deployed.  Well, not LG6, it is a single-troop portable, fire-support machine -- think of it as the American classic "China-Lake" on steroid.

US "China Lake" of the Vietnam war fame
