Abstract:

The fuel-cell installation was subjected to 1 0.30-cal ball and 0.50-cal AP projectiles which were fired from a range of 75 ft, and 2 fragments from a statically detonated 40-mm HE projectile which was placed 24 in. outside of the installation. Tabulated gunfire-test results show that 21 of the 22 qualifying wounds sealed satisfactorily.
