Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9830863A1] A projectile or warhead for fighting armoured targets has a material (1) with practically no end ballistic effect as an expanding medium radially enveloped by an outer body made of a penetration material (2) with a distinctly higher end ballistic effect. The expanding medium (1) may be made of a light metal, duro- or thermoplastic materials, fibre-reinforced plastics, elastomeric materials or a dense and dynamically soft metal. The expanding medium (1) may further contain substances with a pyrophoric and/or explosive effect, possibly as a powder or liquid. Strips (20) or other bodies (21, 24, 25) may be embedded in the outer body. The outer body (2) may be made of high-density sintered metal, of a brittle material or of very hard steel. The outer body may break into splinters. A massive penetrator (6) or several penetrators (26) may be arranged at the centre of the expanding medium. The projectile has a tip (38, 41) and is spin-stabilised or aerodynamically stabilised as a full calibre projectile or as a subcalibre pierce-and-seal projectile. The projectiles may be expelled from dispensers. The projectiles or warheads can be mounted on guided or non-guided missiles.
