Yugoslavian M75 & M93 Fragmentation Grenades
M75 - M93 Types
These hand grenades reflect modern design trends, using plastic molded components.

The M75 Grenade on the left uses a common "mouse trap" style fuze mechanism, first developed by the U.S. at the end of WWI.
It has a cocked striker held back under the lever.

The M93 Grenade on the right continues to use the percussion style found on the Mod.1917 grenade.
The M93 Fuze is little changed. The most notable difference is the use of plastic instead of aluminum and brass.
The vent is now located on the side.
The fuze thread is reversed on the body and a normal right hand twist for the protective cap. The ridges on the outside are to provide a secure surface to hold.

The internal fragmentation matrix consists of a matrix of many small steel balls for the M75, a steel coil for the M93.

As with the M52P3 there is a plastic transport can for the M75 as well.
