Rifle Launcher and Rifle Grenades

I downsized the grenade images because admittedly, I was confused as to which one is the launcher and which one were the grenades when I first came upon the page. I thought that all five were grenades when I first looked at it. Also, if we have images for these rifle grenades, what about things like Energa and all the other compatible grenades? Should their images be on the page too? That would be a lot of images. --Wuzh (talk) 02:51, 19 January 2019 (EST)

Um...didn't the captions tell you? I'm not trying to be a jerk here, I'm just a little confused as to how that could happen. Also the image of the thing on a rifle isn't really all that useful because we usually have one section for the rifle and another under grenade launchers for the muzzle device, so it's best to use an image of the device dismounted.
As for other grenades, I'm just sticking to the ones specifically for this launcher. I suppose we could put the others on a see also, but only the M7A3 can fire the Energa anyway. Evil Tim (talk) 02:55, 19 January 2019 (EST)
I personally saw the grenade images as unnecessary because they have their own pages, and there is a link on the page. It's redundant. It felt kinda confusing to me, because none of the other rifle grenade pages do this. Sorry for sounding like this. These images really bugs me in a weird way. --Wuzh (talk) 02:58, 19 January 2019 (EST)
Well my idea was, if I'm going to this page to grab gun images for an entry on a work page, it's kind of nice if all the ones I might need for this launcher are here. We've only got one instance of an M7A3 appearing so far, so sticking with the WW2 grenades seemed like the best way to go. I mean I'll open it up to the floor, does anyone else think this makes sense? Might perhaps be a good idea to move them to a gallery labelled "ammunition" at the bottom and make that the standard for rifle grenade launcher pages. Evil Tim (talk) 03:04, 19 January 2019 (EST)
