History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Explosive weapons are developed as early as the TL:1-3 epoch. In the Terran tradition, some of the earliest wielders of such explosives were known as grenadiers, as in soldiers employing grenades or explosive bombs. Specialized grenadiers were often known as sappers. Some ingenious explosive weapons have been invented by primitive TL:1-3 civilizations including napalm-like pyrotechnics.

By the industrial epoch of TL:4-6, hand grenades have grown common, but suffer from the limitations of being thrown by a sophont’s manipulatory limbs. Rifle Grenades typically appear as one of the solutions to range limitations with early hand grenades.

Typically by the TL:7-9 epoch, sophonts have begun to work around the limitations of thrown weapons by using kinetic projectors or special launchers for such weapons. Grenade Launchers are some of these solutions to firing grenades at farther ranges. [1]
