Abstract
Experiments are described where normal impacts of caliber 7.62 mm projectiles on ceramic faced steel plates were observed by high speed photography. Three kinds of ceramic tiles in size were used, and they were bonded to a 10 mm thick backing of strong steel plates. When the target was a steel plate alone, a core of M2 AP projectile has easily passed through the target and the core has been almost intact. The ceramic facing has had two effects on the penetrator effectiveness in this case, one due to blunting of the core tip and the second due to removal of the core mass in erosion. Because of these two effects, the defeated core has been far less effective at penetrating steel plate than that of the intact core. We have obtained minimum safe facing composition with each adhesive.
