Projects LAND 40 Phase 2

Project LAND 40 Phase 2 Light Weight Grenade Launcher (LWAGL) System is a direct fire capability requirement that needed to range and deliver target effects to adequately support manoeuvrability of dismounted close combat forces. To satisfy this requirement, NIOA has delivered the MK47 40mm LWAGL, fitted with Lightweight Video Sight (LS2) sighting system. The advanced LVS2 provides a new level of capability for light weapon sighting systems with integrated colour video and thermal imaging.

The LWAGL capability requirement consists of a man portable, integrated MOTS 40mm LWAGL System that provides precise engagement of point targets out to 1200m and area targets out to 1500m by day and night with a load carriage component that interfaces with the Soldier Combat Ensemble when carried in its primary dismounted role.

The scope of work undertaken by NIOA includes:

  1. delivery of the LWAGL systems
  2. supply of spares
  3. training
  4. acceptance testing, provision of technical data; and
  5. certification support
