German Version

It serves all the purposes listed above with the possibility of gibbing a soldier or destroying the structures that take a direct hit from it.

Real Life

Smoke screens have been used to cover movements of infantry, vehicles or ships, and were a common sight in naval engagements during WW1 and WW2. They have been extensively used during October 1943 when the Red Army crossed River Dnieper where a 30 kilometres (19 miles) long smoke screen was used and at the Battle of Anzio when US Chemical Corps maintained 25 kilometres (16 miles) long smoke screen for 2 months providing the beachhead complete protection against the Axis trying to observe the area. In modern warfare they are used to disturb enemy infrared scanners, range finders and laser beam target designators.
