    Considering it has a gray body with red lettering, it is most likely a riot control agent munition.

    Google Translate says it's Vietnamese language, a product of the Ministry of Public Security. Then just lists the production date and expiration date. Not sure what type of gas CKN is though. "Quả" translates to 'fruit' so that's got me confused.

    I like the taking a picture of the taking of the picture. Very 'meta'

    Could it be that in Vietnamese the riot control agent CN becomes CKN?

    It is a CS gas grenade with a burn time of 20 seconds ! Slightly similar to our M7s from the 70s.

    But, while most of us tend to use standard color codes as Jon opined, some of our friends don't always play fair

    Just because its baby blue does not mean it's inert !
