This is the French equivalent to the OICW, PAPOP stands for "PolyArme, POlyProjectiles. It is a 35 mm grenade launcher with a 5.56mm rifle. It does have electro-optics that can be connected to a helmet sight or transmitted to HQ. Work has been done by GIAT and FN, among others (FN was a partner in the AAI proposal for the OICW.) The PAPOP uses a 35mm round because the French believe a smaller round cannot be effective. The 200 g round must have a lower muzzle velocity than the 20 mm OICW, and thus a shorter range (although the attention to recoil abatement suggest a much higher veloity than the 40mmx26R). Also the PAPOP has a three round tube magazine rather than the 6 rd box mag of the OICW. The explosive round is especially interesting because it can be programmed with different fragmentation patterns. This would reduce the minimum safe arming distance of the grenade.

The PAPOP is essentially a French version of the OICW.66 Like the OICW, this rifle is of a 5.56 x 45 mm caliber. The main difference between the two systems is that the grenade launcher on top of PAPOP is a 35 mm projectile. However, it is supported by a digitized state of the art individual support system similar to that of the American "Land Warrior". A project with the acronym FELIN is developing a system of add-on modules (separate but compatible with PAPOP) that provide the soldier

"with the ability to detect targets by day and night to a range of 300 m; identify friendly troops (IFF); use remote sighting to aim and fire from behind cover; designate targets; and transmit video data that is received on a helmeted mounted display".67
The PAPOP grenade system can be programmed at the instant of firing to optimize a lateral or frontal fragmentation pattern on the target area. The grenade weight is 200 grams. The weapon incorporates day and night sights, a laser range finder, and several digitized programmable features. The French believe that a 35 mm grenade is the minimum size required to meet their lethality requirements. It should be noted that while most high velocity, launch-fired spin stabilized grenades are 40 mm, the Russians have developed a 30 mm grenade with a round weight of 348 grams and grenade weight of 275 grams.68

I was gonna say that, from the info you mentioned, it sounded like an OICW, and it doesn't look unlike one either.

You'd think they could reduce the size a bit, but I suppose if it doesn't weigh so much, it's all good.

So you're telling me that it's a French Weapon? With that in mind, I suppose that when you fire it, a little white flag pops out and says I surrender, je suit coward!

Still... GIAT and FN do not produce bad guns. These are just early prototypes... Who knows how this will develop? most of the pics are old and in case of the OICW the shape of the weapon changed in time. So will this. The smaller version you showed us:



they even got a smaller version,,,


for example was the first prototype.

There is still hope this will be a fine weapon... How the french will use it won't have to do with design.

and a pics:
An old one


And the most commonly known one, I think.
