V40 Mini-grenade

One of SOG's more esoteric weapons was the V-40 mini-grenade. Obtained from the Netherlands by Ben Baker (head of the Counter Insugency Office on Okinawa) they were the world's smallest hand grenade, and weighed only 3.5 ounces.

It had a lethal blast radius of 5m and exploded into 400 lethal fragments. The V-40 was extremely popular with the SOG men as it's small size and light weight meant that they could carry a very useful escape weapon in reasonable quantities.
