China has made breakthrough in the development of terminal-sensitive projectiles. At present China has established a system for the design, analysis, imitation, test andevaluation of terminal sensitive projectiles.
Terminal-sensitive projectile is also called sensor-detonated projectile. The intelligent shell can detect the targets and turn the warhead toward them when it explodes, said Wang Huaijun, director at a weapon test center.
Terminal-sensitive projectile is a kind of cluster bomb which contains a large number of smaller bombs and is very disruptive. It can be launched by cannons, long-range rockets or aircraft, and can automatically detect and recognize the targets and make accurate attacks, though it cannot continuously track the targets.
Known as a promising anti-tank weapon, terminal-sensitive projectile is characterizedby its large attack range, high accuracy and outstanding damage effect. Besides, it is very economic thanks to its simple structure.The terminal-sensitive projectile has a good operational performance and is finalized after it approving a series of tests on high and low temperature storage, firing range and accuracy carried out by the weapon test center during one year, said the director.
