Remote actions - means, that the grenade will explode after a certain period (3.5– 4 sec.) regardless of other conditions after, as a soldier commits a throw. Double type - means, that pomegranate can be used as offensive, ie. fragments of grenades have a small mass and fly at a distance, less than the possible cast distance; or as a defensive, ie fragments fly at a distance, exceeding the throw distance. A double action is achieved by putting on the grenade so-called "jacket" - cover made of thick metal, ensuring the explosion of a larger mass of the fragments, flying at a greater distance.
