Is this someone messing around, or did the US really adapt the 60mm mortar bomb into a rifle grenade?
Late edit: Appears to be real

On side note, it was interesting to read of rifle grenades used as grapnels...

As pictured in your second URL, this is a more modern successor manual, Chris:
It does not show the 60mm version, perhaps no longer recommended, but would seem to fall under the use of rifle grenade adapters, M1, M2, M2A1 as indicated in that photo of the round and a 1944 Tech Bulletin..

Israelis, back in mid-70s actually made RPG-7 round conversion with illumination mortar round (captured 60mm IIRC), issued to a small patrol boats that lacked illum launchers (they also used few Carl Gustavs in the same role).
