Another weapon was the DAG-10 grenade launcher, an odd "aerial-mine" device that would eject grenades on little parachutes in the path of a pursuer and which, surprisingly, Soviet records say was very effective.

Also DAG-5 were used for 5 air grenades. In principle AG-1/AG-2 air grenades were developed for the rear defense of battle planes IL-2 (first single-seat modifications without gunner) in 1941. Used quite widely since the middle 1942.
DAG means Derzhatel' Aviatsionnyh Granat = Rack for Air Grenades
