I don't have much information on S-Korean grenades.
If anyone has information about grenades used by the South Korean forces,
mail me.



Fragmentation grenade A-3.

This grenade is in form similar to the
US Mk2A1. Body length is 82mm.
Below you can see the A-3 (left) compared to the
Mk2A1. Right photo shows the base of the A-3.
It is unknown if the grenade was actually issued with the M204A2 fuze. The paint is very dark green. The base is lightly stamped with a five point star, otherwise there are no markings.
