In the wild, ever-evolving world of military tech, Turkey just fired a salvo that’s set the game ablaze.

Picture this: a drone buzzing through the sky, not just any drone, but one armed with a six-barrel rotary grenade launcher. Badass.

That’s right, folks; welcome to the future, and it’s packing heat.

The Birth of a Beast: Songar Drone Meets RDS40-MGL

According to reports, it looks like this isn’t your average science fiction fantasy; it’s the brainchild of Asisguard, the Turkish defense firm that’s been cooking up something fierce.

They took their brainchild, the Songar drone, and slapped on the RDS40-MGL – a 5.4-kilogram (12 pounds) grenade launcher designed by the sharp minds at Repkon Defense Systems.

Lighter, Meaner, and Packing a Punch

What makes the RDS40-MGL stand out in this crowded field of death dealers is its weight – or lack thereof.

At 1.5 kilograms (3.30 pounds) lighter than its peers, it’s like a featherweight fighter with the punch of a heavyweight.

It fires 40×46 mm and 40×53 mm caliber rounds, reaching up to 400 meters (1,312 feet) and 800 meters (2,624 feet), respectively.
