Sweden’s NextGen Air Burst Hand-Grenade (PHOTO+VIDEO)

The SwediAirBurstMansh Army ushered in a new era of hand-grenades with the recent acquisition of the Air Burst Hand Grenade (AB HGr).

Produced by Rheinmetall Waffe Munitions ARGES, the grenades “roll around on the ground, come to a complete stop, erect themselves and jump to a height of 1.5-2m and explode.” They are reportedly “designed to engage targets behind cover” and are capable of defeating Kevlar vests. According to tests, they have a 98% effective kill radius within 5-meters.
