Abstract:

A CONCEPT IS PRESENTED OF A RECOILLESS LAUNCHED ANTI-TANK PROJECTILE CAPABLE OF ENGAGING FRONTAL ARMOR OR OF A MAIN BATTLE TANK. TWO INNOVATIONS ARE BROUGHT TOGETHER IN A UNIQUE CONFIGURATION THAT PROVIDES A VERY LONG ROD PENETRATOR AT AN IMPACT VELOCITY IN EXCESS OF TWO KILOMETERS PER SECOND. THE ESTIMATED WEIGHT OF THE PROJECTILE IS 10 KILOGRAMS, ITS LENGTH IS 88 CENTIMETERS. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE PROJECTILE WILL BE LAUNCHED FROM A 106 MM RECOILLESS RIFLE USING A STANDARD CARTRIDGE CASE AND A PROPELLANT SUCH AS M10 OR T28. ACCURACY AND HENCE EFFECTIVE RANGE IS EXPECTED TO BE LIMITED TO ABOUT ONE KILOMETER. LOW COST ERROR COMPENSATION TECHNIQUES CAN BE USED TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM EFFECTIVE RANGE TO TWO KILOMETERS. THESE ARE NOT PART OF THIS ORIGINAL PROPOSAL EFFORT.
