Rocket-Assisted Grenade

Overview[edit]

The Rocket-Assisted Grenade (RAG) was developed by the Striker Arms Corporation, a division of Vicore Industries, to improve the capability of conventional infantry when fighting against Battle Armor by fitting a normal grenade with an integral rocket motor. When thrown the rocket ignites and consumes the on-board propellant to produce a short burst which, working in tandem with fold-up fins and an internal gyro stabilizer, increases its thrown range five-fold compared to a normal hand grenade. The soldier can also switch between this assisted-flight mode and high-explosive mode, in which the RAG functions like a normal grenade and the propellant is used as a damage multiplier.[1]
