Overview

This is a box of 6 25mm HIT (High Impulse Thermobaric) grenades. They are fired electronically by a spark igniter inside the launcher's barrel. These grenades are 'fuel-air munitions' that use atmospheric oxygen to generate an explosion instead of carrying along an oxidising agent. Thermobaric weapons produce a far more powerful explosive force than would be possible with conventional explosives of the same size.

These grenades are meant to be loaded into an HPGL Grenade Launcher.

Recommended Doctrine

All soldiers equipped with grenade launchers should carry at least one reload whenever they go out in the field. It is not advisable to send our troops into combat without spare grenades.


Addenda

None.
