I'll try and find those.

You could have a 15mm WP round just do the WP burning damage to the target as a follow-up attack. Having the WP deep inside would make it very hard to remove, so that's a 'free' 6d burning damage, though over a long time period (in terms of GURPS combat).
That's an interesting idea and not something I had thought of. Still, the intended effect is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiQoN1-Ks6Q

A WP grenade doesn't have any explosion damage, just a 5-yard burst.
I suppose this makes sense, so we would end up with 6d pi++ linked [1d(0.2) burn]. Does actually look like the scene I linked above.
