The 42M grenade is a Hungarian hand grenade.


The 42M grenade resembles many stick grenades of the time. It has a wooden stick which held a percussion fuse and a mechanism to align the striker which was held to the side, away from the primer. It could be fitted with a fragmentation sleeve over the grenade head to convert the weapon into a defensive grenade.

In Battlegroup42, the 42M grenade is the standard hand grenade of the scout, assault, anti-tank, medic, machinegunner and rifleman classes of the Hungarian forces.
