Section 1.1: Intro

This will be my final Guide for MOH Airborne, detailing the Explosives & Rare 
Weapons of this game. I hope you find this guide useful and refer back to it 
when needed.


Section 1.2: Legal Info

All Information here comes from in-game experience with these 
weapons. Any comments by me on these weapons is purely my opinion. 

Do not copy or take information from this guide without directly 
crediting me as the source.




Section 2.1: Mk.II Frag Grenade

Often called the "Pineapple Grenade", the Mk.2 was used by the allies all 
throughout WW1 & WW2 in every Theater of Operations. Also served in Korea and 
Vietnam before being replaced with the modern "Baseball" grenade.

Carried by allies throughout the game. Up to 14 can be carried by the player. 
Hold down the R2 button to cook any kind of handheld grenade.


Section 2.2: Stick Grenade

Used by Germans in both World Wars, the Stick Grenade could be thrown like a 
fetching stick, hence the name.

Carried by the player and enemies all throughout the game. Up to 14 can be 
carried. Hold down the R2 button to cook any kind of handheld grenade.


Section 2.3 Gammon Grenade

Not much is known about this weapon outside of MOH Airborne, but it was 
actually used in WW2 against german tanks. Also called the Gammon Bomb. 
However, I would appreciate any additional historical info you can give me.

Used solely by the player as an Anti-Tank/Demolition grenade. Can easily clear 
a medium-sized room or area. Throw the Gammon Grenade under a moving Tiger Tank 
to immobilize it. Hold down the R2 button to cook any kind of handheld grenade.

*Note: Press the X button, when close enough, to kick grenades away. Works on 
all grenade types. 



Section 3.1: Composition B Plastic Explosives

Used for structural demolition in WW2. There were two ways of detonation, one 
of which was the use of a "Hellbox" wire-connected detonator, the other method 
was the use of a timed fuse.

Used by the player and a few allies during cutscenes. When you see a red box on 
an object/structure, press the X button to place a charge there. Once a charge 
is placed, SPRINT AWAY!!!!!


Section 3.2: Grenade Launchers

Equipped on many types of rifles in WW2, Grenade launchers were essentially 
light mortars. Commonly used to take out hard-to-reach enemies and clear rooms 
from a distance.

Used solely by the player on the M1, Springfield, Kar 98, and G43. Tricky to 
use, as the grenade might not even fly over your cover object/structure. Use 
only when your fire path is unblocked.


Section 3.3: Fuel Barrels

Ah, ye olde Fuel Barrel. If you played MOH Frontline, you'll know what to do 
here. Shoot these to clear out multiple enemies. Note that these barrels also 
kill any friendlies near them.



Section 4.1: Panzershreck

The German equivelant of the Bazooka. Could easily take out a Sherman tank if 
shot in the right spot. Could also be used to make wall clearings.

Used by the Player and Panzergrenadiers in certain levels. Can be used to take 
out large clusters of troops, and of course, Tiger Tanks. 

!!!!CAUTION!!!! DO NOT USE AT CLOSE RANGE, OR WHEN YOUR FIRE PATH IS NOT CLEAR.


Section 4.2 M18 Recoilless Rifle

Not much is known about this weapon outside MOH Airborne. I would greatly 
appreciate any additional historical info you can send me.

Used solely by the player in Operation Neptue. Used in the same fashion as the 
Panzershreck.

!!!!CAUTION!!!! DO NOT USE AT CLOSE RANGE, OR WHEN YOUR FIRE PATH IS NOT CLEAR.
