The following video shows a device that could allow for very high angle shots which in turn allows for true IDF at close(r) ranges.

That is great. M203's can win a battle and are great for taking out multiple threats, doing that from cover with that level of accuracy is pretty amazing. Inventions and innovations like this literally change the face of combat. It seems small-scale but it's absolutely battle-changing. The observer must be keen for it to work, it's not a fire and forget system but with the splash/shrapnel damage and HE hit the 203 packs it can cause a lot of havoc to infantry units and light-skinned vehicles. That is seriously a good advancement, but will the M320 knock that out? It's already got a range-finder attached and it's so bulky I can't see them modifying it as simply as this. Great invention.

On the topic of 203's, you ever used on internally? Down a hallway into the end room?
