I am still looking for more info on Greek grenades.
If you know any details or if you have photos, please help.


Photo below shows EM-01, EM-02 and EM-03, produced at the "Elviemek" factory.
Thanks Francesco!

This is the standard Greek fragmentation grenade, produced by Elviemek.

Weight: 360 gr
Diameter : 57mm

EM-02 offensive grenade

This is the concussion variant of the Elviemek grenade family, used in close assaults and other situations where fragment production is not desired.
The body is of thinner plastic than the EM-01, and there is no fragmentation lining.
The body of the grenade is smooth, but dimpled, so as to provide a good grip but differentiate it from the ridged EM-01.
