Modern 105-mm kinetic energy KE fin-stabilized ammunitions are designed to spin at much lower rates than are created by the rifling in a M68 tank gun barrel. Spin reduction is achieved using slipband obturators. The development of a slipband obturator design methodology through a Department of Energy Department of Defense Memorandum of understanding is discussed. The results of tests compare the existing, a previous, and alternative band designs are discussed along with suggestions for future designs.
