T13 Beano Grenade

The T13 "Beano" was an American fragmentation grenade designed near the end of the Second World War. The T13 was designed to mimic the shape and weight of a baseball to simplify ease of use, as it was thought that most GIs would already be capable of throwing such an object long distances and with good aim. The T13 "Beano" utilized an impact fuze and, to reduce friendly casualties, was only armed after traveling a significant distance through the air. The "Beano" was armed by pulling the pin whilst holding the safety cap in place with the fingers (as one would hold a baseball) and had an effective radius of approximately 20m (66 ft).

Despite the Office of Strategic Services' best efforts, however, the T13 was somewhat unreliable and just as dangerous to the thrower as the target, causing numerous injuries and casualties during tests. Although a shipment was sent to Europe for field evaluations, it is unclear if the T13 was ever used in combat.
