The 30mm AGS-30 second-generation automatic grenade launcher system (6S9) is a weapon boasting a unique maneuverability, a high firepower, and a long range of fire. The grenade launcher may be mounted on a tripod or a turret, or used as part of a remotely controlled weapon system, mounted on various combat vehicles.
The light weight of the grenade launcher ensures an outstanding mobility and allows it to be used by dismounted units in rugged and urban terrain. This is the first weapon of its class that can be carried by one man along with its tripod in either travelling or combat position.
The AGS-30 fires different types of 30mm rounds as well. The accuracy of fire is ensures by the recoilless operation of the grenade launcher, the best suited rate of fire, and the unique design of the tripod, allowing the weapon to be fired from soft and unprepared surfaces.
Tripod- and turret mounted versions are fitted with panoramic optical sights. Iron sights can also be used as an auxiliary means. At the request of the customer the AGS-30 can be equipped with a day/night sight, and a radar sight may be used to conduct surveillance and accurate fire in zero visibility.
