    East German Practice

    Does anyone know if the F1 practice grenade with that special fuze/charge had a name?

    This is all I can find on it.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    The one with frag body could be called "Exerzierhandgranate F1 für Knallsätze"

    Hallo,
    as of 1980 there was only one real practice grenade, the URG-N. The fuse was just called "Übungszünder"(trainingfuse) in combination with a "Übungszündladung"(training-ignitioncharge). These fuses were meant to be reused after recocking and screwing in a new "Übungsladung". There was no F1 training version. Just for throwing practice a red-laquered F1 raw body without fuse was used. The handgrenades shown on Lexpevs site can only be very early postwar models. Another training device was a one way sandfilled plastic "Imitationshandgrante"(imitation handgrenade) with a friction-igniter.
    Bellifortis.

    Regulation "A 050/1/482 Handgranaten, Beschreibung und Nutzung" of 1980 still contains the URG-N training hand grenade.

    Hello rigby,
    the one you mention from A 050/1/482 dated 1980 is the normal, offical russian URG-N used also by the NVA.
    The one mentioned before is the not so often seen one with a noise charge made similar like a flare cartridge. Check at the link from jvollenberg.
