Message:
When you throw a stielhandgranate at a tank and it hits it's armor, there's effect similar to one when tank shell hits armour (I mean there is loud "bump" sound, sparks, some smoke sometimes, I hope you know what I mean  )

Tested also mills bomb, it's free of this effect.

Vehicles that I used for testing: sherman, Pz3N, Marder

I tested it more and what someone in FF forums said was confirmed: it happens only on local server.

Yes.  That has been around since before the public release of the mod.

However, I noticed it recently (i.e. several months ago) on a public server.  I saw a steilhandgranate impact a bofors gun and that effect was present.  I tried to replicate it at that time, but was unable to IIRC.

In any case, perhaps the material of the steilhandgranate should be reviewed or something.  I don't know what determines specific effects to be displayed on impact of certain surfaces, but there must be some kind of error with the steilhandgranate.
