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 other 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.

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