Keywords : High velocity impact;Armoured piercing projectiles
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.

Keywords : Ricochet behaviour;Bomb;Scaled models
Abstract : Intensive experimental work carried out, to study the effect of the length of a projectile on its ricochet behaviour has been reported. The work is pertinent for designing the bomb to be delivered by low altitude/high speed mode for destruction of runways. Scaled models have been used to conduct these studies and a relationship showing the variation of critical angle of no-ricochet with L/D ratio is evolved.
