LVOSS - Light Vehicle Obscurant Smoke System

Non lethal munitions can also be fired from the 66mm light vehicle obscurant smoke system (M304 LVOSS) launchers. Typical non lethal munitions for such application include the rubber ball and flash-bang grenades. Both munitions are designed to affect area targets at longer standoff range. They can be fired at a range of 80 100 meters and burst at the impact area. The flash/bang is used mainly for temporary distraction and warning, while rubber-ball non-penetrating payload is used to repel crowds.
