Noiseless Grenade Launcher Developed

Russian weapon-makers from Nizhniy Novgorod demonstrated a new grenade launcher, designed for special forces. New grenade launcher doesnt produce any loud noise, fire or smoke.
      The launcher with a caliber equal to 82 millimeters has special construction, which locks powder gases in bombs tail, therefore, no loud noise, or fire, or impact wave and smoke appear. The only noise it makes is like AK-47 with a silencer.
      Similar grenade launcher already exists in France, however, it has smaller shooting range and lighter warhead.
      New Russian grenade launcher weighs 13 kilograms and shoots 13 times per minute.
