Israeli 105mm & 120mm ammo adaption


#1

I came across this PDF link and found it incredibly fascinating and beyond cleaver. It seems they figured out how to convert tank fired HEAT rounds into antipersonnel rounds by the creation of a special “Add On” fuze conversion. In case others here may also find it interesting, here is the link.

Very interesting, I wonder if the converted HEAT shells are really doing the anti-personell job as well as real AP types.

The other described system of the clustered HE-AP shell is a patent of Diehl from Germany (1986).

I have noticed that Israel and Germany work together on allot of weapon and ammunition projects.
