Abstract:

This TOP describes procedures for determining the penetration ability of high explosive antitank HEAT warheads during development and acceptance tests of antitank projectiles, missiles, and rockets. Included are static tests that determine penetration as a function of standoff distance and spin rate, and dynamic tests that provide data on armor penetration at various obliquities and standoff distances.
