    Rgd-33

    Hello,
    Does anyone know what is the real weight of trotyl loading in the russian grenade RGD-33 ?
    Internet source mentions 85 grammes and If I understand well cyrilic translation, russian documentation mentions 140 grammes. Maybe I missed something.
    Regards
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    From a Russian manual from 1943 that I have, which covers many grenades, the weight of its bursting charge (разрывного заряда) is 140 grams.

    It's something I've seen time and time again when writing stuff on Russian weapons. Which is, Western data is commonly incorrect, or at least does not agree with what's in Russian official (not potentially dodgy internet) sources.
