Grenades and Pyrotechnic Signals

Tonight's reading is FM 3-23.30, where the reader will learn about:

- Fragmentation
- Illuminating
- Chemical

- Offensive (f/k/a "concussion")

- Practice and Training, and
- Nonlethal

grenades and related devices, as well as training programs for each.

The hard copy I purchased recently is dated June 2005, with a change letter dated 27 November 2006. The online version above is from 2000, so any devoted readers are urged to obtain the most recent copy of the FM that you can.

Along with the details on the care, feeding, and use of current US grenades, the appendices also feature drawings and specifications of common NATO and OpFor grenades.

Audentes fortuna juvat.
