Abstract:

This Army Service Test Procedure describes test methods for collecting and recording data during firing exercises for use in determining the ammunition functioning. Ammunition functioning includes its performance during loading and firing extraction and ejection cycle projectile flight fuze function and detonation in the terminal target area. The procedures are intended primarily for use in evaluating the functioning of artillery caliber ammunition for combat vehicle-mounted main armament, but is also applicable to small arms ammunition for automatic type weapons. Known as a common test procedure, it can be used in evaluation of specific ammunition as part of the overall test for determining its suitability for service use by the U. S. Army.
