105mm to 155mm Ammunition and Metal Parts
General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems is one of the primary producer of artillery shells for the U.S, military. Our Scranton Operations has been in continuous production since 1963, and manufactures artillery shells for 105mm to 155mm caliber applications.
155MM M107 HE
The 155mm M107 HE is a conventional, hollow forged steel projectile filled with TNT high-explosive. A TNT supplemental charge may be fitted to projectiles loaded with a deep intrusion fuze cavity and is removable for assembling proximity fuzes such as the M514, M728 and M783 to the projectile. A swaggered gilding metal rotating band encircles the projectile near its base. The rotating band is protected from damage during shipping and handling by a composite grommet, which is removed before firing. A threaded, lifting plug closes the fuze cavity to prevent damage to the threads during handling and storage.
155MM M795 HE
High Explosive Projectile
The M795 is a 103lb 155mm high fragmentation steel (HF1) body projectile filled with 23.8 pounds of TNT or IMX-101 with a gilded metal rotating band for compatibility with all current and future towed and self-propelled 155mm howitzers. The IMX-101 reduces vulnerability from unplanned detonations of the munition providing greater safety while handling.
155MM M549A1 HE-RAP
High Explosive – Rocket Assisted Projectile
The 155mm M549A1 HE-RAP is an extended range, rocket assisted high-explosive projectile for use in long-range harassment and interdiction (H&I) fire mission. The rocket motor is located in the aft end of the two-piece forged alloy projectile body. The rocket is initiated by a pyrotechnic delay which ignites upon a gun launch and provides a 7-second delay. This delay maximizes the range extension effect of the rocket motor. The copper alloy rotating band is overlay welded to withstand Zone 8S propelling charge launch forces and is protected during storage and handling by a plastic grommet. A specially designed shock-attenuating lifting plug is provided for handling and storage.
Artillery Training Ammunition
The 155mm MR103 is a cost-effective training round without a main explosive charge. The round is ballistically matched with HE M107 projectile that also delivers equivalent precision to HE M107 projectile. The MR103 uses a standard fuze cavity of IAW STANAG 2916 that is compatible with a fuze setter. The round offers smoke and bang signatures for forward observer training and also has reduced fragmentation.
155mm SMArt 155
The 155mm SMArt 155, a Sensor Fuzed Munition (SFM) for 155mm Cannon Artillery, is a fire and forget artillery round that is very effective in GPS denied environments and against targets with large target location errors (TLE). SMArt 155 uses high performance explosively formed penetrator (EFP) technology and a multi-mode sensor suite to provide predictable and precise lethal areas of effects in all-weather and environments. SMArt 155 is compliant to the DOD Unexploded Ordnance requirements. The SMArt 155 will bring a proven, cost-effective, and low-risk solution to the US Army and the Marine Corps providing a robust solution to defeat medium and heavy armored targets.
PROJECTILE METAL PARTS
General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Scranton Operations, produces a wide range of projectile and mortar metal parts for large-caliber cannons, artillery, as well as aircraft and naval platforms. As the principle Operating Contractor for the Scranton Army Ammunition Plant (SCAAP), this facility has been in constant production of metal parts for weapon systems since 1963.
