What is Tungsten Alloy Armor Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot?
Tungsten alloy armor piercing fin stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS) is a type of ammunition which, like a bullet, does not contain explosives and uses kinetic energy to penetrate the target. The term can apply to any type of armor-piercing shot but typically refers to a modern type of armor piercing weapon, the tungsten alloy armo piercing fin stabilized discarding sabot, a type of long-rod penetrator (LRP), and not to small arms bullets.
The principle of the armor piercing fin stabilized discarding sabot is that it uses tungsten alloy armor piercing kinetic energy, which is a function of mass and velocity, to force its way through armor. The modern KE weapon maximizes KE and minimizes the area over which it is delivered by: maximizing the mass of whatever (albeit small) volume is occupied by the projectile—that is, using the densest metals practical, which is one of the reasons depleted uranium is often used, being fired with a very high muzzle velocity, concentrating the force in a small impact area while still retaining a relatively large mass.
Tungsten Alloy in Military Weapons:
Tungsten alloy has so many advantages: high density with small volume, high radiation resistance, non-toxic and environmentally friendly, excellent hardness, high melting point, etc. So it is widely used as the materials of military weapons such as tungsten alloy bullet, tungsten alloy armor and shells, tungsten alloy shrapnel head, tungsten alloy grenade, tungsten alloy hunting gun, tungsten alloy bullet warheads, tungsten alloy bulletproof vehicles, tungsten alloy tank panzers, tungsten alloy cannons, tungsten alloy armor piercing, firearms, etc. Tungsten alloy can be used as the component in the kinetic energy penetrator.
