Photo Of The Day – This is a rare sight captured by Jan-Phillipp Weisswange. You’re looking at the G95K (which is an HK416 A7 “Short” 14.4″ barrel) with an HK269 Grenade Launcher.

This is, so far, the only picture I’ve seen of the two systems combined. As a bonus, it has the green/brown colour scheme, the long handguard and the EOTech sight with magnifier.

There is another one, in black, on HK’s homepage.

The HK269 is an enhanced development of the GLM/M320 in calibre 40 mm x 46 (low velocity) with the option to unlock the barrel either towards the left or right.

The interfaces to mount it on assault rifles and the option to use it as a stand-alone weapon remain unchanged.

Application range of up to 350 metres. The HK269 is suitable for both lethal and non-lethal ammunition.

The French Army is using a similar setup for their HK416F (with 14.5″ barrels), and they bought 10,767 pieces of the HK269. Check here for more details and some pictures.
