Expal goes base bleed
Expal munitions will include an EC102
electronic fuze, a base-bleed unit
and the DM92ES modular charge.
Expal has designed and
manufactured the projectile, fuze
and base-bleed unit as part of
an MoD partnership programme.
Complying with the JBMOU
that ensures compatibility
with different types of 155mm
Expal munitions are
also qualified in accordance with
NATO’s STANAG standards.
With the aerodynamically
streamlined ER02A1 projectile
and base-bleed that reduces its
base resistance, a substantial
increase in range is achieved.
Firing with six propelling charge
modules, the 52-calibre SIAC
howitzer can now reach a range
of 40km.It is believed with a
bit more research that this can be
improved , thereby enhancing the
possibility of better export orders
both in and beyond EU. SA Artillery
