    For Grenade Collectors - Lots of Greddes Sold In Groups

    I am not a grenade collector and know very little about them, but figured I would share these auctions I came across. There is a seller who is listing various auctions selling batches of grenades. No clue if any are rare, but just in case, FYI

    A practice AP or AT mine for the Volcano mining system as used from trucks or low flying helicopters. The same mine is used in the gator BLU system, however there with a fletner rotor on the outside of the mine.
    The spring on the outside enshures the mine will end flat on the ground on one of both flat sides.
    For a better description see here:
    BLU-91/B anti-tank mine and the BLU-92/B anti-personnel mine, USA (bocn.co.uk)

    If I recall correctly it could also be MOPMS, which had a different designation for both the AT and AP versions. The whole family gets confusing, with MOPMS, Volcano, Skeet, GEMSS, RAMS, ADAM, Gator, etc all falling under the FASCAM family - Family of Scatterable mines - ‚Äčused to rapidly emplace large tactical minefields. All were very similar bodies, with usually different stabilizing or "righting" elements

    Looks improvised, but not a pattern I recognize.
