Abstract : Interaction of high velocity projectile with hard targets is a complex phenomenon and depends on many factors such as plate thickness and its hardness, striking velocity of the projectile, angle of impact, nose shape, calibre, mass and material of the projectile. No experimental data of the interaction of 30 mm APP shots with steel was available in the country. To generate the same, experiments have been conducted and observation pertaining to the behaviour of the shot and damage inflicted on the target are discussed.
