Yeah, he's referring to the way the grenade explodes rather than what is actually released. Instead of releasing tear gas, some sort of corrosive compound that does affect the armor of a vehicle would be released.

even then its different, a tear gas grenade releases the gas through a pressure nozel on the top of the nade, which is incongruent with the way the acid cloud is presented in outpost2.

Do not argue with Freeza on pety details, or you will get severely owned.

The way Freeza describes Acid Cloud make sense, otherwise the entire cloud would expand and dissipate incredibly quickly, though in Outpost 2 it clearly lasts for several seconds. Also, the cloud continues to expand from the center, indicating that some sort of grenade is still spewing gas.

tear gas grenade
Hmm so its basically tear gas grenade but without the teargas. I really think that the design for the acid cloud grenade would need many improvements before it would operate like op2 shows. Go look at some crowd control videos, thats not how acid cloud should work.

But you do have a point, most of the tech in op is available today.
