This grenade is a tear drop shaped glass flask sealed at the upper end by drawing out the flask. The sealed tip is protected by a cardboard sleeve, sealed with a plaster of Paris type material.
The munition is used by throwing against a hard surface which breaks the flask. The titanium tetrachloride then vaporizes, forming an effective smoke cloud if relative humidity is high. The smoke cloud is then at low relative humidity.
The grenade is used to produce a small smoke screen to blind the enemy. It is also used to patch gaps in larger screens.
