US Cartridge, 90mm HE, M58

 

1572-466

Description

This round of ammunition was developed largely for testing purposes. It is identical in every way to the Shell, HE, M71, except for filler which consists of TNT, ammonium nitrate, and flaked aluminum. The aluminum gives a brilliant flash when the shell functions, and produces an incendiary effect against inflammable targets.
