US Cartridge, 37mm HE, Mk 2

 

1572-343

Description

The Mk II High Explosive Shell is standard for issue and manufacture although it is not widely used for infantry support. It is only reasonably satisfactory as a substitute for armor piercing shot against lightly armored targets since it will not penetrate .375 inch of good armor plate at 500 yards.
