    Scalable Offensive Hand Grenades

    My guess is SOCOM uses it as a replacement for the Swedish mini-grenades and the Navy Mk. III concussion grenades, the former isn't exported to the US since Vietnam and the later was phased out of service. The grenade itself is fairly small and definitely appears to be a concussive, small kill-radius device. If the soldier needs more bang more HE sections are added to the grenade.

    U.S. Army testers recently evaluated a new type of hand grenade that allows soldiers to connect up to three sections of explosive for a more powerful blast.

    The Scalable Offensive Hand Grenade offers conventional soldiers a new capability. Unlike the standard fragmentation grenade, this design offers mainly a blast effect that can be doubled or tripled to suit the job. It has also been fielded to U.S. Special Operations Command since 2010.

    Army officials tested it during a recent live-fire portion of the service’s annual Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment at the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Ga.
