    Default 'V40' Grenade

    The Dutch designed 'V40' was produced in the 1960's and was used by US Forces
    in Vietnam, and by the Canadian Army. It's an example of how far 'state of
    the art' technology had come 40+ years ago, and I imagine it is still in
    service today. A soldier could carry many more of these than the
    standard 'M26' developed at the end of WWII, which had
    replaced the 'pineapple' style 'MKII-A1'.

    This particular one is a training grenade, painted blue and marked
    'NWM-V40' and 'INERT', with a beer cap along side for scale.
    - It is about the size of a golf ball.........!

    Nice little grenade. Although developed in Holland it never made it into the Dutch army. Don't think it is still in production as it was replaced for the V65.
