M202 Flash Rocket Launcher Details
Once thought to be a pipe dream the days of the 3D printed rocket launcher have finally arrived.
The M202 FLASH Rocket Launcher is a man-portable, four-barrel rocket launcher originally designed to replace World War II-era flamethrowers.
The M202 FLASH launcher features incendiary rounds and is a lightweight, individual rocket launcher intended to be used by a single operator. It is also known as the “Flame Assault Shoulder” and was tested in the Vietnam War.
Wild Arms Research and Developments M202 design is nearly 100% 3D printed and includes testing rounds (ordinance) to go launch rockets at your (cough) private range.
To clarify, if you 3D print the M202 Flash rocket launcher and install 66mm caliber barrels or use anti-personnel ammunition of a different caliber, the firearm would be classified as a Destructive Device under the National Firearms Act (NFA).
This means that you would need to submit an approved Form 1 to the ATF in order to legally make the M202 (US residents only).
