Atlas International Group deliver and supply ammunition and RGO-78 granades. Painted olive green with black markings, this defensive granade is hand-thrown, with around 800 steel balls in a plastic liner on the inside. The function of the RGO-78 is the destruction of manpower. The fragmented ball lining inside has maximum impact and is fitted with a comprehensive detonating mechanism with a delay of 3-4.2 seconds.
The RGO-78 is a variation of the RGD-5, which was developed in the early 1950s. The original RGD-5 was designed to replace the vintage hand granades that were used in service. There is a double-layered steel pre-fragmented body that generates a lethal radius of up to 20 metres. The safety radius is in the range of 266m2, and they can be stored for up to ten years.
The explosive charge of the RGO-78 is TNT, and the granade is 85g. It’s primary use is for anti-personnel employment during close combat operations. The pre-formed fragments make this the perfect addition to modern warfare.
