Sinee the last test, the 1.
The SLAB will record the necessary test data. Do not elean or relubricate support weapons unless required for completion of the test. The procedure for such a modification must be coordinated as early as possible 42–602 safety authorities, personnel involved in the actual modification, and personnel experienced in the conduct of the test.
Lethality is a measure of the ability to cause death. Armor penetration tests are usually fired at range ambient temperatures.
ITOPDrop Tests for Munitions, gives procedures, summarized below, for simulating parachute deliveries by vertical drop tests. In all cases local safety regulations and procedures must be followed.

Generally, the completely bare test cartridges are submerged under water in an air tight transparent chamber. A 30 minute waiting period is recommended before approaching the package. The otop surface of the gage is curved to conform to the cartridge case. Pressure barrels Barrels ehambered for the test eartridge and ported for eleetronie or erusher type pressure gages. For Recoilless rifle ammunition, lethality refers to projectiles that kill through the effects of kinetic energy.
Preferably, the package utop orientated to give the jet the longest possible path through the energetic material.
FR/GE/UK/US INTERNATIONAL TEST OPERATIONS PROCEDURE (ITOP) 4-2-602 ROUGH HANDLING TESTS
TB does not have an equivalent test. The inspections will reveal any damage to the ammunition was caused by the test procedure either individually or cumulatively. It outlines test phases to be included and points out important features to be considered for each phase. This TOP does not constitute a requirement to do any of the specific tests nor does it serve to set performance or safety criteria for Army materiel.
Exercise care 42-602 assure that the drill does not remove any propellant from the cartridge case. This test is equivalent to km of transport as loose cargo in tactical wheeled vehicles over rough terrain. Some areas that must be considered are: The breaching capability of Recoilless rifle ammunition is usually limited to urban architectural iop such as doors and walls. Documents such as the SEP or CDD should be reviewed for required sample sizes or for confidence levels from which sample sizes can be derived.
A hole is cut in the center of each screen so that the 4–2-602 may pass through unimpeded. Euze function should be recorded by suitable instrumentation such as a video camera positioned perpendicular to the target. Records of previous tests of the same or closely related ammunition should be consulted before establishing the maximum permitted wind velocities for the test. A breach may also be defined by the dimensions of an opening. Set the plate at the obliquity required for the first shot.
This test is needed only if components of the test ammunition are judged to be susceptible to changes in air pressure. The objective of this test is to assess the reaction, and time to reaction, of a munition when it is subjected to a continuously increasing temperature environment. Conducting all three procedures will allow comparison of data across conditions and will greatly aid the development of an error budget.
Target distances are measured from the end of the barrel proper, irrespective of muzzle devices such as flash hiders, muzzle brakes, etc.
It is usually not necessary to use both a new weapon and a weapon near the end of its life unless required by the test plan or customer Request for Test Services.
Provisions must be made for remote firing and proper protection of test personnel. Temperature conditioned ammunition should be fired ihop 30 seconds after it is removed from 4-2-6002 conditioning environment. Erect a functioning target behind the dowel array in the same manner as for the sheet material test, a minimum of ten meters is recommended.
Possible results include projectile ricochet, projectile function on the first or subsequent impact, and projectile embedment in the target media. The test procedure used must be coordinated with the Army Fuze Management Office if the data is intended to support fuze qualification. This test is for unfuzed ammunition.
