Recent Developments in Anti-Tank Ammunition
Keywords: Propulsion, Kinetic energy ammunition, FSAPDS ammunition
AbstractEvery advance in anti-tank ammunition has been matched by advances in armour material or vice-versa. This applies both to kinetic energy and chemicai energy type of ammunition. Today the kinetic energy ammunition appears to have an upper hand over armour. In t his paper, a brief survey of the modern FSAPDS ammunition, its design aspects and its material technology is made.The capabilities of HEAT type of ammunition are also discussed and the likely trends in ammunition technology are indicated. Some futuristic developments in the field of propulsion are briefly mentioned.
