Ability Background

In the mid-nineteenth century, the first smoke bombs were created by the British inventor Robert Yale, although much more rudimentary models were already used in Japan in war conflicts.

Smoke bombs or grenades were widely used in the World War II theater to create smoke screens to cover military movements, target marking and signalling. They were also used as naval smoke screens, to conceal navy units.

The use of smoke screens on tanks, which are used as cover, and thus prevent them from being attacked, has been normalized.
