The Type 97 Hand Grenade (九七式手榴弾 Kyūnana-shiki Teryūdan) was the standard fragmentation hand grenade of the Imperial Japanese Army and Imperial Japanese Navy SNLF during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II

Usage by the JapaneseEdit

The grenade has appeared in The Pacific three times, most notably when a Japanese soldier kills himself along with two Marines on Guadalcanal, and when Bill Leyden is wounded by one thrown out of a bunker in the Bloody Nose Ridge, and least noticeble, at Cape Gloucester, when a Japanese tries throwing it at a machine gun, but is shot down throwing it just short of Chuckler and the rest of the squad. However, most explosions during battles in the series may be grenade explosions.
