German M43 Concussion Grenade

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is the M43, the simplified version of the classic German stick grenade. The fusing is moved from the base of the stick to the top of the charge container, using the same fusing as the E39 Egg Grenade. This one has a fragmentation sleeve fitted over the charge head in order to raise its lethality.
