Explosives Includes personal munitions such as bombs, grenades, mortars, and Bazooka-launched rockets. Mk II Grenade The Mk 2 II anti-personnel hand grenade is the U.S. standard issue anti-personnel grenade. Weighing in at almost a pound and a half, despite grooves in the cast iron to improve grip, it can only be thrown to a range of 30 yards. With a fuse timer of 5 seconds the thrower needs to seek cover immediately, especially with the potential to roll back toward the thrower. Mills Bomb The Mills Bomb is the most common British hand grenade that as with the similar Mk. II grenade has the grooved cast iron "pineapple" design to aid with grip, not fragmentation. Slightly heavier than the Mk. II it still has a effective throwing range of 30 yards but with a slightly shorter fuse timer of 4 seconds the thrower has even less time to find cover! Stielhandgranate Model 24 The standard hand grenade of the German armed forces that relied on a concussion blast effect from the charge rather than on fragmentation damage. The result is that these grenades were better in enclosed areas, such as buildings, whereas the fragmentation grenades of the Allied forces were more effective in the open. Still weighing between 1 and 2 lbs. and on a 4½ second timer the handle design increases the throw range to 40 yards, as well as making unpredictable rolling less of an issue. Page 141
