Finally released… and this package ($128.00 USD) was sold out on eHobby in a day.
The ICS TAG Grenade System is an Mil-Sim 2-part 40mm grenade that actually launches a projectile (according to ICS, they go really freaking far, too). This particular projectile releases powder on impact. From the videos I’ve seen on YouTube at various ICS tradeshow booths over the past year that mention this, there are supposedly other varieties of projectile rounds coming out sometime later.
I could see these being very cool to use in Mil-Sim or scenario-based games… though the high price point for Grenade Cartridges is the biggest factor that will be preventing me from buying myself a set any time soon ($81.00 USD each on eHobby, or $410.00 USD for 6)… that is, until someone here who writes scenarios gets wind of this and starts integrating these into games. That being said, I find that the price on the Paint-Powder Grenades isn’t too bad ($70.00 USD for 10 on eHobby), as each grenade is actually cheaper than the Enola Gaye Smoke Grenades available locally ($9.95 CAD each).
