Abstract
Preliminary free - flight tests were conducted to verify the integrity of sabots and the A1, A2 and A3 DRDC-ISL model configurations launched from a powdered gun in the velocity range of 200 to 1400 m/s. Projectiles of each configuration were fired as well as a series of slugs for charge determination. The propellant charge mass, muzzle velocity, maximum accelerations and drag coefficient were determined for each shot when fired from a 110-mm smooth bore gun and a 105-mm rifled one with and without a high-low pressure chamber adapter.
