    Russian propaganda grenade VAG-42

    Hi,

    I just found a russian propaganda grenade I didn't know about.
    Maybe some of you experts already know it.

    The rifle grenade VAG-42 (винтовочной агитационной гранаты "ВАГ-42")

    Cardboard body with wooden parts (head and base), metallic fin and tube.

    Correct name - Винтовочная агитационная граната ВАГ-42.
    Was producing for a pretty long time - since April 1943 adn till June 1945. Produced 406.000, according official papers. But maybe less, but maybe and more.

    I though "Винтовочная агитационная граната" was singular and "винтовочной агитационной гранаты" was plural. Am I wrong ?
