The MG4 is a modern light machine gun of German origin. It was developed by Heckler & Koch in order to provide the German military with a light machine gun in order to supplement the older and heavier MG3. The MG4 is a direct competitor to the widely used Belgian FN Minimi.
The MLRS is a multiple rocket launcher of US origin. It was developed in the late 1970\'s to meet a joint US, UK, German and French requirement. The name MLRS stands for Multiple Launch Rocket System.
The M163 Vulcan is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun of US origin. Also known as the Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS), it was developed to replace the M42 Duster in US service. The M163 was complemented by the Chaparral self-propelled surface to air missile system in US service. The M163 packs powerful armament that is only of limited use against aircraft due to the lack of automated fire control.
The BM-21 is a multiple rocket launcher of Russian origin. It was developed in the 1950\'s to replace older World War 2 era multiple rocket launchers. The BM-21 is the world\'s most widely used multiple rocket launcher. Its 122mm rocket and launcher design are employed on many foreign weapon systems. The nickname Grad is Russian for hailstorm.
