The GM-94 magazine grenade launcher is designed to engage manpower and soft-skinned vehicles, destroy light shelters, as well as to dazzle fire weapon crews located indoors, cause fires on terrain and in inside rooms containing combustible materials. It fires 43mm VGM93 grenades having various types of fillers (thermobaric, smoke, etc.) which are unrivalled and are far more effective than Russian and foreign grenades for hand and underbarrel grenade launchers.
The grenade launcher is a pump-action type, breechless weapon with a top-mounted magazine and a moving barrel. It is reloaded by the movement of the forearm together with the barrel, which is locked by hooks relative to the fixed face of the receiver. Manual reloading by forearm lengthwise movement ensures reliable operation of the grenade launcher when using various types of ammunition.
