The L-TAG is an advanced grenade launcher developed by well-known Amim-Selbach Defense Corporation. Firing a variety of 60mm large-caliber smart grenades, the “Launcher – Tactical Airburst Grenades” has seen limited use as a tactical weapon with Special Forces.
Urban combat environments are the classic domain for indirect fire such as mortars and grenade launchers. The L-TAG provides increased capabilities by giving operators even more control over when and how a grenade should detonate. With the L-TAG you can bounce grenades around corners or deploy minefields with relative ease.
The extra technology contained within each smart grenade comes at a price however, increasing overall projectile weight and complexity while limiting the amount of explosive and propellant. This results in a reduced effective range compared to other systems. As a safety precaution and for increased tactical use, L-TAG grenades include a proximity sensor that can differentiate between friend and foe.
