The RGD-5 is a Russian high explosive grenade seen in Phantom Forces. It was on the Test Place, but has been temporarily removed.
The RGD-5 (In Russian: Ручная граната Дегтярёва; Ruchnáya Granáta Degtyaréva) or "Degtyarev Hand Grenade" was designed in the early 1950s in the Soviet Union and accepted for service in 1954. Its first recorded use was in the Vietnam War, and still sees use today. The grenade is primarily used by countries that were once part of the Soviet bloc, as well as Middle Eastern countries and other territories where the Soviets have had an influence.
The RGD-5 is a powerful anti-personnel grenade. It is large, has a short fuse, and a high throwing arc. This makes it well suited for lobbing over cover, or timing it such that it explodes in mid-air.
As noted earlier, the RGD-5 has an extremely short fuse. With a neutral throw - that is, the cursor is held level with the ground and the player is not moving - the RGD-5 will fly, impact the ground, and then moments later, explode. Any efforts to increase throw range, either by improving throw velocity or aiming upwards further, will result in the grenade airbursting. This is because of its abnormally high throwing arc.
Usage and Tactics
Much like the original Frag, the RGD-5 is the answer to a crowded room. What should be noted, however, is that the high throwing arc will often cause the grenade to bounce off a ceiling, making close quarters more awkward for throwing through doorways.
