M24 Anti-Tank Grenade IRL

The Model 24 Stielhandgranate (German, "stalk hand grenade") was the standard hand grenade of the German Army from World War I until the end of World War II. The very distinctive appearance led to it being called a "stick grenade", or a "potato masher" in British Army slang, and is today one of the most easily recognized infantry weapons of the 20th century.[1]

The Germans were the first to come up with an improvised anti-tank grenade by taking a stick grenade and taping three or more of the explosive heads together in order to create a larger grenade and explosion. Known as the Geballte Ladung or "Bundled Charge", it was typically thrown on top of slow moving tanks where the armor was thin.[2]

Battlefield 1Edit

Two kinds of Anti-Tank Grenade will be featured in Battlefield 1.[3]

Anti-Tank GrenadeEdit

"This bundle of grenades will detonate upon contact with a vehicle to deal significant damage."
— In-game description

The Anti-Tank Grenade is a gadget available to the Assault kit, for engaging armor at close range.

It inflicts moderate damage to armor, and can also destroy walls. Two grenades are provided. They can immediately damage armor upon impact, but also have a time-delay fuze and can deliver significant splash damage.

Due to their weight, they are difficult to throw.

Light Anti-Tank GrenadeEdit

"This grenade offers improved damage against vehicles by sacrificing anti-infantry performance. Will detonate immediately when hitting a vehicle."
— In-game description

A Light Anti-Tank Grenade is available to all kits as a grenade option.[4]

Players riding a horse carry two light AT grenades which automatically replenish.

The grenade is modeled after the Hales Pattern No 2 grenade Mk II, without its stabilizing cloth streamers.
