The 76mm fast smoke grenade, the 76mm airburst grenade as well as the 80mm fast smoke grenade are pyrotechnical devices for the protection of vehicles, armored platforms and their crews. The fast smoke grenades are launched by a thrower mounted onto the vehicle, enabling rapid cover and thus sufficient protection for the vehicle and own forces. The chemicals used are harmless for human beings and the environment.
The 76mm fast smoke grenade generates a smoke screen of approx. 70m in width and approx. 10m in height. The airburst effect of the 76mm airburst grenade can, for instance, blind guided missiles with IR seekers so that they miss their target. The 80mm fast smoke grenade generates a smoke screen of approx. 95m in width and approx. 10m in height.
The substances, used in the development and production of smoke agents, are harmless for human beings and the environment. Diehl Defence´s smoke agents are NATO-qualified.
Both fast smoke grenade variants have been company-qualified and introduced in service with numerous NATO partners.
