Cartridges

  • The M791 APDS-T cartridge possesses the superb accuracy and penetration necessary to defeat today’s threats. Its high velocity, coupled with a low time of flight, assures effective performance at extended ranges.
  • The M792 HEI-T cartridge offers the accuracy and lethality needed for light materiel, anti-personnel and fire-suppression roles. This cartridge features the M758 Point Detonating Self-Destruct Fuze developed and produced exclusively by ATK.
  • The M758 provides superior arming delay, graze and extended-range sensitivity, and self-destruct.
  • The M793 TP-T is a low-cost, target practice cartridge, ballistically matched to the M792 HEI-T round.
  • The M910 TPDS-T is a training cartridge designed to specifically match the trajectory of the APDS-T round but with a desired range limit.
  • The PGU-32/U SAPHEI-T round provides aerial and surface gun platforms with improved effectiveness against soft and light armored targets. This round is qualified for use on the AV-8/B Harrier and MK 38 Navy weapon systems.
  • The PGU-25 HEI is an untraced round that is used on fixed-wing aircraft, such as the AV-8/B Harrier and AC-130 Gunship. It uses the M505 point-detonating fuze.
