Fake Stielhandgranate

The assault troops and state-prosecutor von Wenk(Bernhard Goetzke) are using fake hand grenades in an attempt to break the door of the house. Note:real explosions are seen,but they were caused by(most likely) petards, and not hand grenades.

No. 15 Hand Grenade "Ball"

During the storm, real explosions tear down the door of the house. At a closer look, some rounded grenades are seen. They were, most probably, british No. 15 Hand Grenade "Ball"'s as they had fuses, and a similar shape.

The balls circled in red are the ones which cause the explosions.

TRIVIA:In order to detonate the bomb, Pesch throws the toolbox inside a room(hitting it hardly against the floor).
