Spirco – Smoke Hand Grenade by Rheinmetall

Spirco is a red – phosphor based hand grenade that creates an instantaneous non toxic screening smoke cloud.
Rapid protection against a wide spectrum of enemy sensors and sights is one of the most important requirements in modern military missions. Being stopped by a barrier, crossing a street in urban combat or being threatened by snipers are examples of situations where spontaneous invisibility can substantially increase the survivability of individuals or groups of soldiers.
SPIRCO provides this rapid-reaction invisibility. In less than one second after burst the smoke hand grenade SPIRCO generates a smoke screen which is effective against visual sight and aiming equipment, night-vision devices, sensors operating in the near IR-spectrum and laser range finders.
