The 40mm grenade launcher is supplied in the form of a single tube with four tubes. The aiming and launching of the projectile is directly controlled by the drone operator based on the data from the surveillance camera, aiming camera, and tracking laser displayed in AR (augmented reality) glasses. The grenade launcher is equipped with a central aiming camera that transmits images to the AR glasses, thus providing the operator with the latest information about the observation position and the aiming and immediate use of the grenade launcher.

Any standard 40mm grenade can be launched from the grenade launcher according to the user's needs. The use of armed drones of this type will reduce the number of team members required for intervention. The use of this versatile modern technology can cause psychological effects.
