Usage and history
"This bounty hunter is my kind of scum. Fearless and inventive."
―Jabba the Hutt, after Boushh used a thermal detonator to renegotiate a bounty on Chewbacca's head

The Merr-Sonn Munitions Class-A thermal detonator was highly illegal for anyone other than military personnel to possess. A Class-A thermal detonator had blast radius of twenty meters, making it the most powerful commercially manufactured detonator in the galaxy- however, some custom-made thermal detonators were even more powerful. A single Class-A thermal detonator was sufficient to cause the collapse of Xizor's Palace, a huge 102-story building on Coruscant, when Lando Calrissian dropped it down the palace's garbage chute into its basement level. Another Class-A detonator was used by Leia Organa, in her guise as the bounty hunter Boushh, to threaten Jabba the Hutt in her attempt to rescue Han Solo. During the Galactic Civil War, Rebel soldiers tuned down the grenade's blast radius for battlefield purposes while mantaining its effectiveness.[2][3]
