Combination of two Soviet army manuals of 1944 and 1974. The 1944 manual covers the hand grenades and Molotov Cocktails that were n the Red Army inventory at the time the manual was written. These included the Type 1933 hand grenade (RGD-33), Type 1942 hand grenade (RG-42), F-1 hand grenade, Type 1942 anti-tank hand grenade (RPG-42), and the Molotov Cocktail with two different ignition systems. The 1944 manual is long on technical descriptions and short on instructions for tactical employment of these weapons. The 1974 manual contains technical descriptions of the hand grenades in the inventory of the Soviet Army at the time. These included the RGD-5, RG-42 and F-1 fragmentation grenades, and RKG-3 anti-tank grenade. In addition, a sizeable portion of the 1974 manual is devoted to tactical employment of hand grenades and the use of training grenades. The principle overlap between the two manuals is the brief descriptions of the RG-42 and F-1 fragmentation grenades contained in the 1974 manual. The resulting expanded, translated manual thus contains technical descriptions of all hand grenades used by the armed forces of the Soviet Union from the mid-1930s to the mid-1980s.
