Arcus IO-30 /VOG-17/ is 30mm High Explosive Round with Self Destruction for automatic grenade launchers AGS-17 and AGS-30.
The round provides effective action against enemy troops in open terrain or in light shelters at distance of up to 1700 m.
The grenade is fitted with distance-armed, self-destruct fuze.
Self-Destruct grenades have a huge advantage as they will explode within 14-19 seconds even if they have not exploded by the main fuze.
In situations where the grenade hits an object at a certain angle and does not explode on impact, the fuze will detonate the grenade within the certain timeframe anyway. This is very important as if an active grenade remains on the field, it can injure friendly soldiers or civilians.
The ammunition is safe in storage, handling and operation and ensures the reliable performance of the grenade launchers in all weather conditions.
