Typically a high speed camera is used to record the flash. At least two screens should be placed at intermediate distances. The rounds should be fired as quickly as practical to reduce the influence of variables such as wind.
Exeessive reeoil ean degrade training, injure the shooter, and damage weapon mounts. Take less than 30 seconds to remove the cartridge from the temperature facility, perform the rotation, and load and fire the weapon.
The results will determine if the test ammunition provides an increase or decrease in smoke as compared to the standard ammunition. All maintenance actions will be recorded. This orientation will reduee rieoehets sinee they will strike the ground under the target. After the inspections, the predetermined sample is removed for firing tests and the remaining ammunition and packing is retained for the loose cargo test. The 4-2-6002 ammunition is used to check out test set ups and instrumentation function, and to perform trial runs prior to the use of itkp test ammunition.
The depth of immersion 4-2-6602 one meter 39 inches and the ammunition is immersed for 30 minutes. The firing procedures and data recorded are somewhat dependent on the specific type of ammunition under test; at a minimum record the projectile velocities, dispersion, and weapon cyclic rates if the weapon is capable of automatic fire.
When planning to test at temperature extremes, sufficient conditioning time should be allowed prior to testing to ensure temperature stabilization. Firings against semi-infinite targets are done to determine the total depth of penetration, shape of the hole, and volume of the hole. Ihop will reveal any debris that may be closely following the line of fire.
If salt deposits or eorrosion prevent satisfaetory weapon funetioning, rinse the ammunition with about one liter one quart of water and wipe dry with a elean cloth and again attempt to fire the ammunition.
Otop test proeedures 4-26-02 to ammunition only; see TOP for test proeedures for recoilless rifles. Also record any difficulties in operating the support weapon with the exposed ammunition such as excessive force required to charge the weapon, difficulty clearing stoppages, etc.
This TOP does itkp constitute a requirement to do any of the specific tests nor does it serve to set performance or safety criteria for Army materiel. Target penetration must be verified by witness screens behind the target or by suitable instrumentation such as for blast overpressure. Calculate the recoil values in accordance with TOP Position targets at the ranges indicated by the requirement documents or test plan.

Data will be reeorded both at the firing position and aloft to the expeeted maximum ordinate. Remove a sample of ammunition after the 2. Request that New Equipment Training is provided for personnel ktop will be conducting the testing.
Given the typically small size of Recoilless rifle munitions it is almost always best to do this test on a package to assure that the shaped charge jet strikes the energetic material. Many Recoilless rifle ammunition specifications and requirement documents give a single criterion for armor penetration capability.
Determine the number of items for 42–602 drop eondition to determine the number required to start the 1.

Erect the veneer target at a distance that assures that the test fuzes will be armed. The flash test is used to determine the flash characteristics of the ammunition when fired. For small calibers, it may be necessary to weigh a sample of projectiles and use the average weight for the ballistic computations. These fumes can degrade human performance, adversely affect short term and long-term health, and can be lethal.
At the end of the 10 days of exposure, remove the ammunition and inspect it for evidence of adverse effects.
Use the task checklists for individual weapons and for crew served weapons contained in TOPPart II, for guidance. Record the height of the weapon muzzle above the impact area, the weapon elevation, and the expected distance to impact. Also, AR requires that ammunition be designed to meet safety requirements for all climatic design values despite their chance of being used or the requirement to operate in those climates.
For most Recoilless rifle ammunition the package will be an overwrap containing two or more shipping and storage containers. If firing tables are available the striking velocity can be converted to range.
Assure that velocities, weapon cyclic rates and bullet dispersion are within requirements.
