Abstract:

The Marine Corps must recognize that they can no longer delay replacing the M203 with the Milkor MGL-140 multi-purpose grenade launcher. With smarter, advanced weapon systems, infantry Marines can improve their maneuvers with direct and indirect fire and achieve greater success on the urban battlefield. Although the Marine Corps would lose several M16A2s from its armories the MGL-140 is the right weapon system for the current operations being conducted by Marines abroad. This weapon system has the versatility needed to be useful for several decades to come.
