MK13 Mod 0 BTV-EL Flash Bang

The MK13 Mod 0 BTV-EL Sound & Flash grenade is a high performance stun grenade that offers several unique safety features. The MK13 produces blinding flash and deafening noise levels sufficient to daze and disorient onlookers, while still falling just under the threshold of inducing permanent injury.

The MK13 uses a delay fuze that detonates the grenade 1.5 seconds after the fly-off lever is released. This time delay, combined with the bottom and top venting (BTV) system and the extended length (EL) of the MK13 body, gives the user the ideal combination of stunning flash and sound in a safe and efficient package.
