RGO-78 HAND GRENADE

The RGO-78 hand grenade is intended for use against enemy manpower in a defensive fight through its high-explosive fragmentation effect and the fragments that form upon destruction of its metal body. It is a time effect type grenade with “time” meaning that the grenade will explode within a certain time (3,2s….4,0s) after throwing no matter what the other conditions are. “Effect” meaning that the fragments of the grenade have a relatively small weight and fly at a distance shorter than the possible throwing distance.
