The 40x46mm Anti–diver HE Grenade provides effective action against enemy divers in water at depth of up to 25m and within projected range of up to 400m.
The grenade is suitable for preventive bombardment of endangered water areas and also for precise bombardment of spotted divers.
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.
