Shaped Charge Warheads

WORLD-CLASS SHAPED CHARGE AND BLAST FRAGMENTATION
WARHEAD TECHNOLOGY

Today’s warfighters need weapons that offer the flexibility to engage multiple types of targets, ranging from heavy armor to structures and personnel. The advanced multi-purpose warheads developed by General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems combined world-class shaped charge and blast fragmentation technology to serve this purpose.

Multi-Purpose Shaped Charge Warheads


Hellfire

Hellfire Romeo Warhead

The Hellfire Romeo Main Charge (MC) warhead combines General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems’ proprietary K-charge technology with a hardened steel case to producing high performance multi-purpose warheads. This Hellfire Romeo warhead has demonstrated lethality against a variety of targets, including tanks, small boats, light armor, trucks, and personnel.

JAGM

Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM)

The Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) system is intended to be a future replacement for the BGM-71, TOW, AGM-114 and AGM-65 Maverick Missiles. The JAGM currently uses a modified version of the Hellfire Romeo main charge warhead. General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems is currently working with the government to adapt our latest anti-armor warhead technology, to further improve the effectiveness of this system.

SBD II

Small Diameter Bomb II (SBD II)

Small Diameter Bomb II (SDB II) is a 250lb class bomb intended to strike mobile targets at a standoff distances in all-weather conditions. This lighter system weight (about 100lbs) combined with a highly effective multi-purpose warhead allows warfighters to engage more targets per mission. General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems designed the SDB and has been producing the warhead since 2014.

Engage Multiple Target Types
with a Single Weapon System

Advanced shaped charge warheads offer improved anti-armor performance and effectiveness against hard targets in a compact package, The compact size creates space and mass for additional weapon system or equipment. Blast fragmentation warheads use pre-formed fragments or naturally fragmenting metal cases, and are intended to engage softer targets, such as light armored vehicles and open air personnel. Combining these technologies with a specially designed hardened warhead case for penetrating structural targets, our multi-purpose warheads give warfighters the opportunity to engage multiple target types with a single weapon system.
