M203 Grenade Launcher
All M203 rounds are 40x46mm grenades.
M203 HE grenade rounds are used to inflict explosive and fragmentation damage in a small area. They require a minimum arming distance.
When shot upwards into the air, M203 'star parachute' rounds will provide good illumination over a wide area for around 40 seconds.
M203 smoke rounds will spew white smoke upon impact, creating a short-lived smokescreen in a small area.
