Abstract:

The best available aeroballistic information on currently fielded and in-development US Army artillery projectiles 105mm and up for indirect fire has been collected or generated and is discussed in the main report. The aeroballistic data includes dimensions and inertial properties, zoning, compacted firing tables, dispersion, sensitivity coefficients, aerodynamic coefficients estimates, and a bibliography of lethality and vulnerability. A bibliography and available data on guided projectile aerodynamics is also presented.
