WiredDotCom’s Dangerroom has got an interesting piece on a new piece of equipment that can launch a large number of different types of weapons and decoys.
It was tested using the Javelin missile, but among other things, it looks like it could probably handle Brimstone/SeaSpear or the 120 mm mortar which should soon have guidance by either laser guidance or GPS against fixed targets.
Reblogged this on Brittius.com.
Defense Industry Daily has an update that includes more information.
It was originally (and probably still is even with some javelins loaded) a decoy launcher.

You have to get near the end before they talk about its use as a weapons launcher.
