Careful on the 40mm buckshot rounds... When the China Lake GL was designed, they tested both the M-406 HE 40mm round and the M-576 40mm buckshot rounds. The HE rounds loaded fine because the HE head was rounded at the edge which promoted a smooth loading process. The buckshot round on the other hand is not rounded like the HE round. It resembles a 40mm shotgun round, which is flat on the front side. During testing, the pump action grenade launcher continuously jammed because of this flat side to the buckshot round. There was nothing on the round or in the chamber that would allow the M-576 to load smoothly. Under testing, service branches were told they cannot use the M-576 round... only the M-406 HE round can be used.

Therefore, in the name of realism, the China Lake 40mm P-A G/L only uses HE rounds...

Sorry about that... I was excited about using the buckshot round as well... but it is not to be...

Pictures of the rounds:

Hope this helps!

We have aussies in the MOD group... Skipping the Aussie Units is not an option... just down the road... can't include a weapon like the SLR and not make the aussies, right?

:eek: ;)

The current size of the units are hard enough to spot and shot as it is. If we made them smaller you might as well lay down your arms, crack a bud and put on a pink bunny suit. This isn't even on our radar at this time.

Point taken. So I take it that this is a design direction.

Well done on the Manual guys, looking forward to the release, and I am happy to see that the Aussies will be in there.

At the moment it seems to be outdoing VTE.

I am glad you guys enjoyed the manual...

We put a lot of time and effort into it... hope it shows... Hopefully, it will just get better... always looking for ideas on how to include additional information.

Give us some time... we are firing up a new Nam website... old one died... :(

Just take your time. :) it's easy for people to get all crazy the closer to releasing something you get, and if there's some unexpected delay, people might even go COMPLETELY crazy. I remember many years back when Invasion 1944 had given a release date for their first release, and it was delayed that day, people even wrote things like "F You Invasion 1944" etc. People really need to just.. relax and.. relax.

I'm completely crazy about this though, I want it now, GIVE IT TO US! Haha. :)

No but seriously, take your time!
