Anti-Plant Grenades are specially designed grenades used for removing foliage and natural material. They release a wide range of toxic and viral agents which quickly turn almost any flora to a foul-smelling muck. They are used to deprive an enemy of foliage cover while not seriously harming other materials. However many of these toxins only work on plants with a certain genetic structure, requiring combat forces to stock the correct type of defoliant prior to each battle.
Larger versions of the grenade are used to quickly clear areas needed for landing zones, camp sites or building locations.
