BOMBA RUČNA SPECIJALNA M79 AG-2

The AG-2 was produced by the same factory as
BRS M79 AG-1 (TRAJAL in Kruševac) and it is practically the same in construction and fuze but it has BZ-chemical agent instead of CS-1.

BZ is 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, a psyhochemical toxic agent which causes hallucinations and irritational behaviour. Some sources say that these grenades were used in 1995 in Srebrenica by Bosnian serb army against bosnian muslims.
This grenade also was marked with yellow ring which indicates that it is "training" (ŠKOLSKA) but it was live and filled with live toxic agent BZ.
Plastic transport can for this grenade is the same as for
BRS M79 AG-1, but it has markings BRS M79 AG-2 imprinted.
