The work will be managed through the Day & Zimmermann Lone Star plant in Texarkana, Texas, and will require the procurement of major components as well as explosive loading and packout of the grenade.  An estimated completion date of Aug. 31, 2021.

The M67 grenade is a fragmentation hand grenade that uses a time fuze and is thrown by hand.

The M67 is a further development of the M33 grenade, itself a replacement for the M26-series grenades used during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and the older Mk 2 “pineapple” grenade used since World War I.
