S6-PG

In YE 40, Section 6 decided to research newer and more effective tactical equipment. After the development of simple fragmentation grenades, they wanted something with a bit more kick, so the boys in the weapons labs thought long and hard - but it was AR&D that gave them what they wanted by taking the pre-existing 1A Plasma Cores, downsizing them, and altering their cooling systems to do the opposite when a digital arming system was triggered. The byproduct was a powerful plasma explosive (detonator included) in a compact casing - and initial testing resulted in high-yield detonation.
