Abstract:

The purpose of this test was to establish a charge for the Shell, 76-mm, WP-T, T140E4 14.72lb, without tracer, and to determine if a ballistic match exists between this round and 15.0-lb, HE, M352 shell. Test phases included charge establishment, range and safety, andACCURACY AND TIME OF FLIGHT. Range tables prepared for the HE, M352 round may be used for the shell WP-T, T140E4, without tracer. It should be noted, however, that since the WP round now weighs 0.28 lb less than the HE round, the WP round without tracer may yield somewhat shorter ranges than the table would indicate. If either round is modified, additional testing should be conducted. Author
