Blast from the Past (1965)

Long before there was the Milkor MGL, there was the Avroc 15-40.

A multi-shot launcher that fired 40mm rocket-propelled grenades.

The 40 mm AVROC promotional material says "it will have a tremendous effect on future military tactics."  Well apparently not.

Couldn't find much about it on the net. Did this weapon fire standard 40 X 46 grenades with the assembly intended to extend range? 

The shape reminds me of a little mortar round.
