Mk-19 Grenade Launcher at Sea

U.S. Army service members setting up and firing a 40mm Mark-19 automatic grenade launcher aboard a vessel during a live-fire target practice training exercise at sea.

The Mk 19 grenade launcher (Mark 19) is an American 40 mm belt-fed, air-cooled automatic grenade launcher. The Mk 19 can launch its grenade at a maximum distance of 2,212 meters (2,419 yd), though its effective range to a point target is about 1,500 meters. It fires 40 mm grenades at a cyclic rate of 325 to 375 rounds per minute, giving a practical rate of fire of 60 rounds per minute (rapid) and 40 rounds per minute (sustained).

  1. I'd rather want to have a M134 Minigun instead of a 40mm grenade launcher aboard a vessel. Even a 50 cal machine gun would be better than the grenade launcher, because it's got more ammo, better range, accuracy, etc.. What could a 40mm grenade launcher do against threats like helicopters or missiles? Machine guns have much better chance of defending a vessel against all kinds of threats with better range and accuracy.

  2. Hooooold up. There is a lot going in here. Looks kinda normal but this is a fuckin leprechaun. Naval vessel? Check. Interdiction weapons training. Check. Here’s what’s mind bending. Those aren’t Marines. I would expect 100% a Marine Instructor. Instead there is a CW2 (Chief Warrant Officer Grade 2) and a Specialist, both Army. Warrant officers are primarily known to be in combat aircraft roles. They are officers, but not in the officer corps as most know it. In regular units, they live in the ether. Between Enlisted and Officers. Here one day, gone for weeks at a time, and reappear with no discernible timetable. PT formation? Maybe? 2 weeks straight, gone a month, 3 days, gone 8 days, there and gone. Like a shadow. Having been in the realm of the E-4, Warrants were like Sifu. Try and grab a little glimpse, a move or a few words. E-4 can sham, but Warrants were fucking Ninja.

  3. Dang, you would think these boys would have massive ammo boxes to draw from, the fact that they don't just stinks. If we were in a war right now like we had in world War II they would have to be reloading every 10 seconds. You'll never win a war that way. These boys should have 25,000 rounds to draw from at any given moment
