The CP-50 “Dragonfire” is a second generation over and under
heavy infantry weapon with high marks for durability and reliability
in action. A pulse laser is the main, top mounted weapon
with a pump action grenade launcher built-in under the laser barrel.
Standard issue includes a passive nightvision scope and
built-in laser targeting.
