Abstract

Resistance tests were conducted in the High Speed Water Tunnel on 2-in. diameter models of the 5-in. A. S. Projectile, Ex 30, and the 6-in. Projector Charge, Ex 1. The 5-in. A. S. Projectile was found to have a terminal sinking velocity of 39.4 fps with armed nose fuse and 35.7 fps for the flat nose projectile without fuse. The terminal sinking velocity for the 6-in. Projector Charge was 34.3 fps with armed nose fuse and 32.6 without the fuse.
