Heckler & Koch AG36

The AG36 is a 40 mm launcher made for use with the G36 weapon system. The “A” prefix is commonly mistaken as an addition to the name “G36,” but is an abbreviation of the German Anbaugranatwerfer, literally meaning “attached grenade launcher” and the 36 coming from the name of the weapon it was designed to enhance, the G36.
