Abstract (en)

Holding device (1) for an undergauge projectile comprises at least three segments surrounding the undergauge projectile body (2). It includes first devices, such as a front cavity (6), intended to receive an aerodynamic flow when the weapon tube is released at the time of firing, and second devices (7), such as a rear cavity (7), intended to receive propulsive gas when the weapon tube is released. The first and second devices are positioned and dimensioned with respect to each other such that the holding device (1) moves away from the projectile body (2) in a direction more or less parallel to the latter when the weapon tube is released.

Abstract (fr)

L'invention a pour objet un sabot (1) pour un projectile sous-calibré comportant au moins trois segments destinés à entourer un barreau (2) sous calibré. Le sabot (1) comporte des premiers moyens, tels qu'une poche avant (6), qui sont destinés à recevoir un écoulement aérodynamique à la sortie du tube d'une arme lors du tir. Il est caractérisé en ce qu'il comporte également des second moyens tels qu'une poche arrière (7), second moyens destinés à recevoir les gaz propulsifs à la sortie du tube de l'arme, les premiers et second moyens étant positionnés et dimensionnés les uns par rapport aux autres de telle sorte que le sabot (1) s'écarte du barreau (2) d'une façon sensiblement parallèle à celui-ci à la sortie du tube de l'arme. <IMAGE>
