Paratroopers Clear Russian Trenches and Bunkers with Frags

Have you ever wondered why fragmentation grenades need to be manufactured as cheaply as possible? This video answers that question by showing you approximately how many fragmentation grenades are needed to clear one decently entrenched Russian position in Ukraine.


Fun fact, there is a legend that states the first hand grenade was used in ancient times when warriors would load a small box with venomous snakes and toss them into enemy tents during night time raids. Obviously, there's no way to independently verify that this is a fact, but grenades are nothing new. They're one of the most effective weapon systems at clearing our sections on enemy controlled territory in close combat, and this video is an example of that from modern warfare.


It's likely that a majority, if not all of these positions, are already empty of Russian forces. The worst way these guys could check that however would be to stick their heads into the positions to find out if there's a Russian rifle pointed at the entrance. Utilizing a hand grenade is the most efficient way to clear the bunkers and trench lines of any remain behind Russian troops, and it also does double duty of setting off any booby traps that may have been left behind by the former defenders.
