The concussion grenade, sometimes referred to as concussion bomb, was a common grenade in widespread use since before the formation of the Galactic Republic and evolved little over thousands of years. There were three main designs of concussion grenades.
Variations[edit | edit source]
Physical[edit | edit source]
The first one was a fairly standard grenade, used by many factions. It exploded with a small blast radius, releasing a blast of kinetic energy that would kill most organics and damage equipment. A sonic shockwave was expelled in the explosion that stunned anyone right outside the 4 meter blast radius.[source?]
Sonic[edit | edit source]
The second kind did not detonate in a traditional sense. The common blast radius was 4 meters, fairly large for a hand-held explosive. It created only a sonic shockwave, stunning anybody hit by it rather than killing or wounding them.[source?]
Anti-armor[edit | edit source]
The third kind, designed for use against vehicles and equipment. The grenade was very useful against vehicles that were fast or slow moving because of its tendency to stick to a vehicle's armor. The grenade was not used much against organics, due to its small blast radius.
