Base Bleed increases the pressure at the base of the projectile, through the combustion of the propellant grain. Thus, it extends the range by decreasing the total drag of the shell.
ROKETSAN’s Base Bleed Unit increases the maximum range about 30% for 155 mm MOD 274 Extended Range Artillery Ammunition. Development studies are ongoing for different diameters and calibers.
- Extends the Projectile Range up to 30 %
