Abstract : This report, in support of the Ballistics for Future Systems program, analyzes the improvement in tank cannon hit probability to be gained by increasing the muzzle velocity. It finds negligible improvement in hit probability against a stationary target but significant improvement in hit probability against a moving target. It also compares the effect of improving the fire control with increasing the muzzle velocity. Doubling the muzzle velocity appears superior to a first order predictor but inferior to a second order predictor.
