Abstract:

As part of the BRL program to develop the non-conical boattail projectile, twenty 155mm projectiles were fired from an M185 gun tube on 18 and 21 October 1977 at the Sandia Corporation, Tonopah Test Range, Nevada. This is the second phase of a planned three phase test program at Tonopah on the non- conical boattail projectiles. The report describes the experimental plans and presents the data records and some of the results obtained during the projectile flights.
