Assault Rocket Launcher
|Assault Rocket Launcher|
The ARL fires 10mm solid fuel rocket slugs. Each slug has four pinhole-sized nozzles angled to imitate rifling and "burns" for 5 meters before momentum takes over. The use of rocket slugs provides many advantages. For example, no cartridge ejectionsystem is needed, so the weapon can be sealed from dirt. The action and barrel do not have to withstand high pressures The weapon’s chief disadvantage is its high signature.
The ARL can be fired in both automatic mode and semiautomatic mode, with each automatic burst consisting of four rounds.
