DM 24

The DM 24 is a German incendiary smoke hand grenade, being an improved model of the earlier DM 19 incendiary hand grenade. The DM 24 contains 255 grams of red phosphorous, and no explosive charge. Upon striking a hard surface the plastic grenade case breaks and upon exposure to the atmosphere the incendiary charge ignites with a blinding flash and emits a cloud of dense, choking smoke. The incendiary charge burns for about five minutes at a temperature of 1200 degrees Celsius, sufficient to ignite any combustible material it comes into contact with.
