No. The devices, in this case a grenade are just to get trainee's trained in the finer arts of throwing, caring for and using a grenade. Then after they are train in those area's they mve to actual grenades and how to throw then and how to react when they throw one.

Not really. They where very easy to throw and got grear distance, but they caused very little shrapnel, alot of soldiers hit with German gernades survived, but at the price of loss of hearing.

I don't know what the Germans use in WWII, but most gernades have gun power. Some Germans like the Gammon are made of high-explosives.\

But, a grenade with lots of explosives ins't really going to cause much damage unless used inside, it more of a concussion when use agianst troops out in the open.

Its being slowly introduced. The GPMG is good craic though.

The blue grenade has no mechanism or fuse, its a drill round same weight and size of a live round.
