As with its big brother, the 81mm L16, the 51mm can fire a range of ordinance including illumination flares, obscuring smoke and high explosive rounds out to a maximum range of 750 meters.A skilled operator can put up to 8 rounds down range per minute.
weight : 6.725kg
barrel length : 700m

Smoke: 900 grams
High Explosive: 920 grams
The L9A1 is gradually being phased out in favour of the 40mm rounds fired by the Grenade Launcher found on the SA80a2 UGL.
