Description: The Shoulder-launched Multipurpose Assault Weapon (SMAW) is a man-portable, lightweight and versatile grenade launcher weapon system employed by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to neutralize armored vehicles, bunkers and fortifications. This weapon system can hit a 1x2 meters target with a 90 percent probability at combat ranges. The SMAW is well suited for military operation in urban terrain (MOUT) firing from under cover thus greatly enhancing survivability. Talley Defense (Nammo Talley) has developed a variety of warheads for the SMAW weapon system.
The Follow-Through Grenade (FTG) is equipped with shaped charge for use against brick and concrete wall. The Common Practice Round (CPR) is an inert training round duplicating live round weight, CG and flight characteristic. High Explosive Dual Purpose (HEDP) uses a target-sensing fuze to detonate at optimum moment devastating bunkers, light armor, as well as brick and concrete walls. The High Explosive Anti-Armor (HEAA) is designed to attain full penetration of heavy armor from nearly any oblique angle. The Novel Explosive (NE) is a dual purpose, dual safe, self discriminating warhead for urban destruction.
