Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9749969A1] The invention discloses a non-lethal projectile. This projectile (1) comprises a longitudinal body (5) with an internal longitudinal striking pin (55) capable of piercing a container (47) of fluid under pressure in a controlled manner in particular by the impact of the projectile (1) on a target. The striking pin (55) comprises an internal passage (59) opening outwards of the body (5) by means of canals (60) provided in a rigid wall (35) integral with the body (5) such that the outlet for the fluid under pressure remains clear even if the impact causes a deformation of the container (47). The fluid contained in the container (47) can thus be released and spread over the target even in such case.
