The Heckler & Koch AG36 (Anbaugranatwerfer 36; "attached grenade launcher 36" with the 36 denoting it was designed for the G36) is a 40mm underbarrel grenade launcher developed by Heckler & Koch. The basic AG36 replaces the host rifle's handguard, while the later AG-C (also known as GLM or EGLM, not to be confused with the FN EGLM) is designed to attach to an underbarrel rail. The British military uses the AG36 as the "L123A2 UGL" on the L85A2 and the AG-C as the "L17A1 UGL" on the L119A1 carbine (the British name for the Diemaco C8).

The AG-C is the basis of the US military's Heckler & Koch M320, and is hard to distinguish from the early XM320 version of this launcher. Modern versions of the AG-C have an under-barrel rail used for mounting a front grip, while the M320 and some versions of the AG36 have a fixed front grip. The key difference between the latter two is the M320 mounts to a rail while the AG36 still uses a replacement handguard.
