The Military History Museum of the Central Military District at the House of Officers of the Samara Garrison created a model of the first Russian hand grenade.

“We have created a model of the first domestic fragmentation grenade, which was invented in 1904 by Staff Captain Nikolai Stepanovich Lishin and was first used in the Russian-Japanese war near Mukden. This is a rather rare exhibit, indeed a rarity, ”said the head of the officers’ house Alexander Nazarenko. – “They were produced in total 90 thousand. During the war years and, most likely, all were used.”

A. Nazarenko also noted that the model of Lishin’s grenade made it possible to collect the entire history of Russian hand grenades in the museum.

“The museum has Soviet and modern grenades: RGD, RG-41, RG-42, F-1, RGD-5, RPG-40. And what were the grenades in the First World War, few people know. Therefore, we recreated the Lishin grenade, this is a rather complex layout so that people can follow the development of military affairs. “
