Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0159388A1] Barrel assembly (10) includes an array of individual barrels (11) with each barrel (11) including a sabot stripping structure (23) and a sabot receiver (28) arranged to collect and prevent sabots (14) from exiting muzzle (20) of barrel (11). Each barrel (11) incoporates a multiplicity of sabotted projectiles (12) stacked axially within barrel (11) and a multiplicity of interposed corresponding propellent charges (16). Sabotted projectiles (12) each comprise projectile (13) and an associated sabot (14) detachably engaged with projectile (13). Detonation of a leading propellant charge (16) urges following sabotted projectiles (12) into sealing engagement with respective barrels (11).
