Auto Launcher

Auto-launchers are vehicle-mounted grenade launchers. They are simple, six-barreled weapons mounted on vehicle hulls, firing salvos of three grenades at a time. They are used on Imperial vehicles. Loaded with frag, krak or blind grenades, they are useful for close defense and laying smoke screens. The auto-launcher carries six grenades, all of the same type.[1]

A semi-autonomous variant designed to be mounted on emplacements and barricades as well as vehicles. Each pre-loaded canister contains either three pairs of Frag or Smoke grenades, and can be triggered remotely from nearby crew or set to activate based on detected movement or sound. When fired they shoot out a pair of grenades in a 45 degree arc from the front, designed to either disrupt or disorient nearby infantry.[2]
