SARA first developed the multi-function grenade (MFG) for use in the U.S. Marine Corps’ Clear-A-Space District Deny program. The grenade gives a loud sound at the maximum OSHA levels and a flashblinding light at the maximum ANSI levels.
MFG also emits distraction sparks, malodors, riot-control agents, and stingballs, and other distraction components can be added. Among Stingball options are commercially available stinger grenades, the MFG Stingball package, and new Stingball options that run continuously for multiple seconds.
The 66 mm grenade can be hand thrown or rendered by standoff delivery.
