The MK19 (alternately displayed as the Mk. 19 or MK-19) is a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher featured in both ArmA: Armed Assault and ArmA 2.

ArmA: Armed Assault

« The MK-19 Automatic Grenade Launcher augments the M2 .50 caliber machine gun throughout the US military. The MK-19 is mounted on HMMWVs or Infantry Fighting Vehicles to deliver intense suppressive fire against enemy personnel, soft vehicles or bunkers.

The Mk. 19 is used exclusively by U.S. Army forces in ArmA: Armed Assault.

Overview

The Mk. 19 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 Mk. 19 is not fitted with any magnified optics, and uses a simple leaf sight that provides range markings ranged for targets at distances of between 50 and up to 1,500 metres away.

Both vehicle-mounted and static Mk. 19s feed from 48-round high-explosive (HE) grenade belts. Their warheads have a blast radius of 5 metres. They are always pre-loaded with a single belt by default and have access to a further three spare belts to reload from.

With a decent rate of fire and accuracy at long ranges, the Mk. 19 can unleash a barrage of HE grenades on any ground target from distances of up to 1,500 metres away. The Mk. 19 makes for a deadly defensive weapon against both infantry and light vehicles alike.

Unlike the M2 heavy machine gun however, the Mk. 19 lacks a raised tripod variant and is restricted to a low-mount only. This does result in the gunner being limited to a very limited firing arc at all times, and can leave them vulnerable to being flanked by enemy infantry.

Trivia

  • Prior to Patch 1.14 which added the Warfare game mode, the static version of the Mk. 19 did not exist and served exclusively as a vehicle-mounted weapon.

The MK19 is used by both the U.S. Marines and U.S. Army forces in ArmA 2.

Overview

Returning from Armed Assault, the MK19 continues to serve as the primary static AGL used by both branches of the U.S. military.

Statistics-wise, the ArmA 2 MK19's base statistics remain largely unchanged with the exception of its fire rate, which has been raised significantly to 400 RPM.

The other main difference with the MK19 is that it can now be disassembled and packed into a man-portable backpack form, which allows it to be carried and reassembled at any location depending on the operator's choice.

Vehicle-mounted and static MK19s continue to feed from 48-round HE grenade belts. However, static versions always have three 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).

As before, the MK19 remains as a deadly defensive (and potentially offensive if unpacked at the right location) weapon against both hostile infantry and light ground vehicles. In direct fire mode, the MK19 can hit targets at ranges of approximately 1,500 metres. Indirectly however, the MK19 can potentially strike targets as distant as 2,000 metres away.

However, the MK19 still suffers from the same problems faced by its predecessor - namely that it has an extremely limited rotation arc due to its low-mount tripod. Unless the user disassembles and reassembles the MK19 in another direction, the MK19 is unable to cover all directions and leaves the gunner vulnerable to being flanked.

MK19s feed exclusively from one type of "magazine":

48Rnd

Standard 48-round grenade belt box. The grenades are fitted with HE warheads.

They have a minimum fuse range of 15 metres. Grenades impacting the terrain below this distance will not explode.


Trivia

  • 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).
  • Following the latest Steam versions patches (as part of the Community Configuration Project), the fire rate of MK19s have been increased from 240 to 400 RPM.
