HomeGRENADESSOVIET & BALKANCroatia

This is the third version of grenades made in PROGRES factory during year 1991.
After complains from the Croatian soldiers that
JASKANKA 2 is too heavy to be thrown far enough, the factory decided to make a similar but smaller model, with the same type of the fuze used in JASKANKA 2.
The body was made smaller, but with more of square shaped fragments from the outside surface of the grenade body.





All of these grenades were originally painted in 3-colour camouflage scheme.
It was hand-sprayed in the factory using ordinary spraycans with car nitro lacquer colours.
The camouflage colours used were dark green,brown and light yellow.

Total length : 110 mm
Diameter : 50 mm
Weight : unknown
Filling : 100 gram of Amonal
