36 M grenade needs a separate blank cartridge + 7 Second Fuze + Iron ring + adapter firing attachment for barrel of 7.62.I believe the 36 M rifle tube would need blank cartridge to be fired. The one in Shivalik has bullet trap technology allowing live munition to be fired.
If 4 Second fuze is used there will be an airburst of the grenade at 4 Second which has its own uses.
Due to these, a dedicated "bomber" is required to fire 36 M Grenade. One soldiers amonst ten is nominated and equipped to a "bomber".
For Shivalik Certain things are not clear :
How can the Grenade travel 200 meters when fired from a rifle launching tube as time of fuze is only 4 Seconds ?
Will every Rifleman be able to fire rifle grenade ? Safety ring provided and normal ball round used for firing ?
Any air burst technique ?
