The present invention provides a unique structural arrangement wherein the flechettes are releasably supported and sandwiched between pairs of disc plates. A central coaxial radial, plane wave, explosive driver is disposed axially of said plates and flechettes and extends between the outer plates. The flechettes are oriented radially or laterally and when radially directed are provided with a fin assembly slidingly and coaxially mounted on the body thereof with a rear enlarged portion for firmly holding said fin assembly after launch and for providing a surface area upon which the propagating wave energy will act.
