The grenade launcher is the wz. 74 Pallad, which is also of Polish design and manufacture. It is a 40mm standard type, but is of different design than the American made, M203 grenade launcher. It fires a 40mm x 47mm grenade.

Here are the specs from Wikipedia and as always please remember that Wikipedia is not always accurate about detail and specs.
