1x Custom German M24 Stick Grenade Anti-Tank Bundle (Geballte Ladung)

With printed reminder on the explosive charge: Vor Gebrauch Sprengkapsel einsetzen ("Before use insert detonator").

 

To counter the lack of effectiveness against hard targets such as tanks and buildings, a common solution was created in the form of an improvised "bundle charge". The charges of a number of M24 grenades – their handles and fuses removed – would be strapped around a complete grenade, usually with simple rope, cloth, or metal wire. These could be crafted with up to six additional charges, and in battle the most common styles to see were the addition of four or six. Unofficially, these improvised bundle grenades were known as Geballte Ladung (English: bundled charge or concentrated charge).

As a result of this cost-effective and reliable solution, the standard infantryman of the Wehrmacht could quickly improvise a grenade with up to seven times the explosive power. However, the added weight made it more difficult to throw, and the increased size meant that it was not practical to carry with one hand and that far fewer could be carried. These factors meant that infantry squads, if faced with an armored enemy, would have to close to a reduced range if they wanted to use the bundle charges. During the early years of World War II, there was little in terms of truly effective German handheld weaponry designed to fight hard targets such as armored vehicles and structures, and even later in the war this style of bundle grenade remained useful to the common Wehrmacht infantryman.

 

This set contains small parts and is not intended for childern under 3 years.
