This is the Type 89 Grenade Launcher, often called the "knee mortar"despite not being fired from the knee... or being a mortar.  Many would say this is the one shinning star in the entire arsenal of the Japanese infantryman.

It was small, easy to aim, load, shoot, and the 50mm grenade it fired wasn`t a joke.

I think it deserves special attention cause it`s the one example of a purely Japanese design, both in concept and specifics.  No other nation had a comparable weapon.  The design was ingenious
