General Dynamics insensitive munition high explosive with tracer

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems has been awarded a $93,000,000 foreign military sales (Iraq) contract to obtain 120mm insensitive munition high explosive with tracer (IM HE-T) tank ammunition cartridges.

The 120mm IM HE-T High Explosive Cartridge provides the armor forces with an improved infantry support capability, a US DoD contract announcement said.

The IM HE-T will compliment the tank’s current main gun ammunition with an IM compliant full bore HE warhead capable of defeating a target set that includes bunkers, fortifications, light armor and personnel.

According to General Dynamics information, The IM HE-T possesses a devastatingly powerful HE warhead for the modern battlefield.

The two-mode hand-settable fuze allows the tank commander to select a point detonating function for maximum fragmentation/blast, or a delay function for detonation after target penetration
