The MK19 is a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher that is used by the U.S. Marines and U.S. Army forces in ArmA 2.

Overview Edit

The MK19 is a static/vehicle-mounted automatic grenade launcher that is chambered to fire 40 mm grenade rounds.

It can attain a fire rate of up to 150 rounds per minute, and has a muzzle velocity of 240 m/s. The MK19 is not fitted with any magnified optics, and uses a simple leaf sight that provides range markings accurate against targets of between 50 and up to 1,500 metres away.

Both vehicle-mounted and static MK19s feed from 48-round high-explosive (HE) grenade belts. Static versions always have three more belt boxes in reserve, while vehicle-mounted MK19s such as those on the RHIB or the AAVP-7A1 may have up to four boxes spare (not all MK19-equipped vehicles have the same grenade loadout).

With a decent rate of fire and accuracy at long ranges, the MK19 can unleash a barrage of HE grenades on any ground target from distances of up to 1,500 metres away. The MK19 makes for a deadly defensive (and potentially offensive if unpacked at the right position) weapon against enemy infantry and light vehicles alike.

Unlike the M2HB heavy machine gun however, the MK19 lacks a raised tripod variant and is restricted to a low-mount only. This does result in the MK19 having a very limited firing arc unless its operator disassembles and reassembles the MK19 in another direction, meaning they won't be able to easily adjust aim since they cannot fully rotate the MK19 in all directions.

Trivia Edit

  • The USMC MK19, like all other pre-Operation Arrowhead static weapons, cannot be disassembled into a man-portable backpack form (U.S. Army versions on the other hand can be packed/unpacked).
    • This is because the ability to dismantle/reassemble static weapons was only added with the release of the expansion pack, and was not retroactively applied to the original ArmA 2 static weapons (as none of the pre-expansion pack units are able to carry backpacks in the first place).
