Tests were conducted to determine the ability of each piston-type accumulator to remain in 1 piece and the material of the cylinder to resist excessive tear the size of the tear not to exceed 3 in. in any 1 direction beyond the hole cut by the projectile when subjected to a 0.50-cal incendiary- projectile impact. The 50-cu in. accumulators failed to comply with specifications. The 200-cu in. accumulators performed satisfactorily. The 100-cu in. accumulator charged with hydrolube for comparison with petroleum-base hydraulic fluid failedto remain in 1 piece. The fluid and air end caps employed on the accumulators performed satisfactorily.
