Tungsten alloy armor piercing bullet relying on the kinetic energy of the projectile, penetrates armor and destroys the target. Its characteristic is high velocity, long hitting the distance and good accuracy.It used for mutilate tanks, self-propelled guns, armored vehicles, ships, aircraft, or any other armored target.
Tungsten alloy armor piercing shell
is a type
of ammunition designed to penetrate armor and detonate. They are
generally used against body armor, vehicle armor, tanks and other
defenses, depending on the caliber of the firearms.
Shells of the tungsten alloy armor piercing bullets designed for
this purpose have a greatly strengthened case with a specially hardened
and shaped nose and a much smaller bursting charge. Some smaller caliber
tungsten alloy armor piercing shells have an inert filling, or
incendiary charge in place of the HE bursting charge.
Tungsten alloy armor piercing bullets are famous for their
ability to penetrate target.It is mostly because large kinetic energy
and their high tensile strength focused on the target. Tungsten alloy
armor piercing bullets are made from the high-density tungsten alloy
that is much harder than most armors. All have a very hard tungsten
alloy armor piercing warheads.Tungsten alloy armor piercing bullets can
be used against tanks, armored vehicles and concrete
fortifications. When fired, tungsten alloy armor piercing bullets are
under the high-temperature, high-pressure gas. Reach the target, it
will make a pit in the surface of the armor, red out the armor and the
pit bottom at the same time. At this time, although the head has been
broken, missile force the powerful impact of inertia, it will continue
onrush. When the impact force reaches a certain value, the fuse is
triggered, it caused the explosion of the projectile charge. At this
time, exploding charge will create tons of pressure per square
centimeter in area, killing the crew inside the tank or destroying
The most widely used tungsten alloy armor piercing
bullets in the world are made of a hardened steel, tungsten alloy,
tungsten-carbide, or depleted uranium penetrator enclosed within a
softer material, such as copper or aluminum. Tungsten alloy rounds, for
instance, take advantage of their high-density material, designed to
retain its shape and carry the maximum possible amount of energy as deep
as possible into the target.
The tungsten alloy armor piercing bullets fired from
rifles are strengthened with a copper orcuprous-nickel jacket, much like
the jacket that surrounds lead in a conventional projectile, a jacket
which is destroyed upon impact to allow the penetrating charge to
continue its movement through the targeted substance.
One of the most famous types of tungsten alloy armor
piercing bullets used in the past was the Teflon-coated bullets.
Contrary to popular belief, the Teflon coating did not in itself help
the bullet penetrate deeper, instead it was meant to help reduce the
wear on the barrel after firing hardened projectiles. The strange fact
is that this misconception even produced laws that lead to the
restricted use of these bullets, eventually leading to their
The famous example of such a blunder was the assassination
attempt on US President Ronald Reagan that took place on March 30,
1981. Then, the shooter used an tungsten alloy armor piercing bullet
with a normal revolver, which actually deprived the bullet of its
ability, contributing to the bullet missing the heart by less than one
inch and piercing his left lung instead, which likely spared his life.
What most people do not realize, is that it is not enough to use tungsten alloy armor piercing bullet, you must use modified barrel, in order to take advantage of the bullet's piercing abilities.
