U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. James C. Sanchez aims in with the M-32 multiple-shot grenade launcher, an experimental six-barreled weapon that can deliver six 40 mm grenades in under three seconds. Marines are fielding the new rapid-fire weapon to troops to boost small-team capabilities to deliver greater indirect firepower. U.S. Marine Corps photo by Gunnery Sgt. Mark Oliva

This weapon is, without a doubt, the Mikor MGL-140 which was noted on MO and covered by DefenseReview here and here. On the super-sized version at the DoD, you can see that it’s marked “40mm M32”.
UPDATE: Now that I’m looking into it, it appears that this has been getting coverage already. DefenseReview has another post up, and Blackfive has more, as well.
Sheesh. You step away from the computer for a couple of days and the world leaves you behind…
