Abstract
The subcalibre spinning tubular projectile was developed to be a range-limited training ammunition for rifled tank guns, providing a ballistic match with the kinetic-energy-penetrator round. The supersonic shock-swallowed aerodynamics of the tubular projectile were obtained using wind tunnel, free-flight, extended linear theory and subsequently the ZEUS Euler code. This paper presents a summary of results and makes comparison between experimental results and ZEUS for the case of the subcalibre tubular projectile, the RAE tubular inlet, and the NAE tubular projectile - Model A.
