Are you sure that's magazine capacity and not total capacity?

It's new enough, they might be fiddling with everything from 5 to 10 to see what users like best.

Some 20 years ago, franchi proposed the Arpad 600,e sort of mini RPG, loaded with 35mm aeronautic caliber ( I don't remember the exact size, perhaps 35x176mm).
this prototype was proposed as a one man, easy to transport and fire, weapon.
At 600m/sec. this gun could engage also moving targets, also helicopter, but the ideal targets were APC, Mg nest, and snipers.
I always think it was a great, cheap, light solution, with easy to carry ( 20-30 shots) standard and "cheap" ammo, giving the infantry squad a anti-material capability and addictional long range firepower.
With a weight of some 7 kg., today in irak it would be very precious...
The above info are from a very old review, i'm looking for it in my dungeon...

Default Hey, STEALTH!

Your image doesn't shows up; it is hosted with ANGELFIRE, which doesn't likes hotlinking. You'd better save it on your computer, then upload directly to the message by using the "Attachments" option.

AND, about the PAW-80, one doubt: it has the trigger group only on the RIGHT SIDE? Another damn gun that's unusable by lefties!

The trigger obviously fires on some sort of electrical remote, it is possible the grip can be placed on the opposite side if they designed it to reverse.

35mmS: Long, lightweight, high-velocity grenade round fired by the Swiss Arpad 600.
Are you sure that the Arpad 600 was proposed by Franchi ?

Yes!
I've got an old italian military review, with the presentation of the spas15, the prototypes of spas16 / spas 410 ( semi auto mag-loaded bullpup shotguns!), and the designs of the arpad 600.
All Franchi products!!!
Or the site's author was confused with the swiss caliber, or he's wrong...
