TheFederalistWeasel dug up this H&K ad: http://www.hkpro.com/image/gmgcover.jpg

A few days later, I stumbled across this, showing its use in Israel: http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/p/nm/20001020/ts/mdf124168.html

Ok, so it's "grenade", not "gredane".

That's been around a while, and an aircraft version was used in Vietnam. Those grenades are not extremely powerful, but a whole bunch of them can make the receiving end a very uncomfortable place.

The Israeli soldiers are most likely using a U.S. made MK 19 since Israel for the most part does not use German made weapons. Here's a link to the field manual for it... http://155.217.58.58/cgi-bin/atdl.dll/fm/23-27/Ch1.htm
