Tungsten alloy armour-piercing projectile warhead


 What is an armor-piercing projectile?


An armour-piercing projectile is a type of projectile that uses kinetic energy and an explosion to destroy a target. Its main purpose is to penetrate armour, so it is usually used to deal with heavy main battle tanks and can also demolish sturdy defensive fortifications, attack warships, or other targets. It is an essential armament for tank guns and anti-tank missiles.


The warheads of armour-piercing projectiles are typically made from hard materials such as high-density alloy steel, tungsten carbide, tungsten alloys, and depleted uranium to increase penetrating power and destructive force.


How is the armour-piercing layer count and thickness set for an armour-piercing projectile?


The armour-piercing layer count and thickness of an armour-piercing projectile need to be set according to the specific combat environment and target types. Here are some common factors to consider:


Combat distance: Different combat distances require different armour-piercing.


Target types: Different types of targets have varying armour thickness and hardness.


Material selection: The choice of material for the armour-piercing bullet can also affect the armour-piercing number and thickness.


Manufacturing process: The manufacturing process affects the armour-piercing layer number and thickness of the armour-piercing bullet.


To summarize, the armour-piercing layer number and thickness of an armour-piercing projectile need to be set based on the specific combat environment and target type.


What are the standard types of armour-piercing projectile cores?


Armour-piercing projectile cores traditionally come in steel-core and tungsten-core armour-piercing bullet types. These armour-piercing bullets primarily rely on the kinetic energy under high speed and their high strength to pierce the target armour.


 What is a depleted uranium armour-piercing projectile?

A depleted uranium armour-piercing projectile is an armour-piercing bullet made using depleted uranium alloy.

However, depleted uranium armour-piercing projectiles also pose environmental and health problems. Uranium is a radioactive substance, and prolonged exposure can harm the human body and environment. Therefore, when using depleted uranium armour-piercing projectiles, necessary safety measures should be adopted together with compliance with relevant environmental protection regulations.


 What is a tungsten alloy armour-piercing projectile?


Tungsten, due to its high density and hardness, is widely used in the manufacturing of armour-piercing warheads.


How strong is the penetrating power of the tungsten alloy armour-piercing projectile?


The penetrating power of tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectiles depends on various factors, including warhead mass, core mass, initial speed, impact angle, and more.


What are the differences between tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectiles and depleted uranium armor-piercing projectiles?


Tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectiles and depleted uranium armor-piercing projectiles differ significantly in several aspects:


Raw Materials and Manufacturing: The tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectile core is made from tungsten alloy, while the depleted uranium armor-piercing projectile core is manufactured using depleted uranium alloy.


Performance and Effects: Tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectiles have better anti-abrasion performance.


Environmental Impact: Depleted uranium is a radioactive substance.


Usage Tactics: The use of tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectiles and depleted uranium armor-piercing projectiles requires consideration of different factors. The manufacturing and use of tungsten alloy armor-piercing projectiles are relatively more environmentally friendly and economical.
