A flash grenade

The flash grenade (or flashbang grenade) is a type of terran ordnance designed to damage the retinas and/or photo-optic receptors of a target. This is achieved by emitting a burst of light in the visible and ultraviolet parts of the spectrum.[1] Not even polarized visors of CMC armor can protect a terran from its effects.[2] The technology behind flash grenades is far older then that Terran Confederacy.[3]

The A-13 grenade launcher can fire flash grenades to both blind targets and to provide battlefield illumination.[1] Alternatively, they may be thrown by hand.[2]
