This design employs a shaped charge warhead with prefragmented steel balls and a base fuze with pyrotechnic self-destruct mechanism. Munitions that have surpassed the warranty of 5 years should be replaced. We need good dual purpose weapons like a 105mm cannon. Supposedly if it were ever to be used against soviet tanks, dragon at teams would have sustained a disproportionately higher casualty count. Edit: according to the tech sheets, the st kinetics hedp penetration is listed as 63mm mild steel and 50mm rha. Upon impact with a target the nose of the mechanical impact fuze is crushed setting off a multi-step reaction culminating in detonation. Heat thing is rather complex one should really be careful with numbers such as penetration vs.
M433 40mm cartridge high-explosive dual purpose (hedp)
40mm grenade penetration. There was the losat (line of sight anti tank) there were four of these at bragg around 2005 but the project was cancelled for budget reasons. 8 with its lightest rocket) you have a similar weight (the flash weights 12kg loaded with a clip of 4 rockets) and have multishot capability. It arms between 14 and 27 meters, and it causes casualties within a 5-meter radius. The cartridge that provides the best value to the marine corps in terms of performance, large-scale producibility to high- quality standards, and cost will be qualified and fielded for use. The bgm-71 tow is the heaviest antiarmor missile operated by ground forces in the us army. I was a designated grenadier in the us army. Also, losat and ckem were going to be in 4 to 8 round packs.
Patrolling, rear area security, urban operations, and special operations. Not pricey at missiles.
