The GL-27.5 (Grenade Launcher 27.5mm) is a Greande Launcher used in Modern Combat, created by Perficientur. is assigned to Infantry
The original design for the GL-27.5 came from the Milkor MGL Grenade Launcher, a six round, rotating mechanisim firing 40x46mm grenades. The user can adjust the detonating distance by up to 3m ; the GL-27.5 automatically transmits the detonating distance to the grenade in the firing chamber, using air to fire the grenade. The rotating mechanisim is operated by springs after the trigger is pulled, rotating so the loaded chamber circles into place. The top rail system can be exchanged for a scope, or regular iron sights.
