    In the joke thread there is a post about "finding a grenade."

    The first fragmentation grenades (1915) were "Mills Bombs."

    The "pineapple" was replaced by the M26 and M67 grenade.

    Nobody did not gather to throw down her from above. No paratroopers. Her primer of UZRGM, burns only 3-4 seconds. Her even in mountains, giving up is difficult. That is why and there was developed new grenade of RGO.

    The only thing I remember about Soviet grenades was that some of them had 0 second fuse to use in booby traps.
