The type-3 incendiary grenade is used to destroy materiel. The filler of the type-3 AP/AM grenade burns for 4.5 seconds and can damage, immobilize, or destroy vehicles, weapon systems, or munitions. It can also be used to temporarily block enemy movement through restrictive areas. It has acquired the monikers “Molotov” and “firebomb”.
The type-3 incendiary grenade can be thrown 10 meters by the average soldier. The casing of the device is converted to a molten state, which burns at approximately 2200 °C. It must be noted that looking directly at the incendiary grenade as it burns; the intensity of the light is potentially hazardous to the retina.
“The filler seems to be a liquid or a gel or something; it dissipates pretty rapidly under water—I don’t know how it would behave in hard vacuum.”
“It doesn’t burn under water—unless it’s already on something and burning. A thermite grenade will burn under water and that crap has been around forever. Hey, is it just me or does Brute tech seem to be all over the map? Either there’s no info sharing on Brutonia or something bad happened.”
“It sure don’t seem like it was meant for burnin’ materiel, seems more like it was meant for burnin’ personnel.”
“Baby Kongs use ‘em exclusively as eh pea grenades. Actually Kongs tend to capture or abandon material more often than they deny it. ”
“None of the other alien foxtrots use ‘em. Either the bravo kilos don’t trust ‘em with ‘em or the rest of ‘em ain’t as keen on burnin’ folk as kilos are.”
