A photo of a Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass., reservist using the M-203 grenade launcher is featured on the current edition of Air Force Week in Photos

Capt. Charles Trovarello firs an M203 during weapons training Nov. 3. The M203 is a single shot 40 mm grenade launcher designed to attach to a rifle. It uses the same rounds as the older stand alone M79 break-action grenade launcher, which utilizes the High-Low Propulsion System to keep recoil forces low. Trovarello is assigned to 439th Security Forces Squadron. (U.S. Air Force photo/Kelly Goonan)
