During the 1930's Yugoslavia developed two successive models of grenades, producing a Defensive and Offensive pattern each time. This is the first, the Model 1935. The Defensive fragmentation type was made of cast iron with an externally grooved body ( a pattern that resembled the American M1 Pineapple Grenade) .
