Army Recognition Group Defense Web TV were able to follow the manufacturing and forging process of artillery ammunitions at Kovacki Centar, Yugoimport factory.
     

Thanks to existing theoretical and practical knowledge and also bearing in mind experiences from combat environment, the complete family of 155mm rounds has been developed and it consists of standard projectiles, and of projectiles with optimized aerodynamic layout of front ogive with or without base-bleed unit.

During the development many original technical solutions have been implemented, thanks to technical breakthroughs and also appearances of new materials, machines, tools and manufacturing technologies. Needless to say that all of these technical advances aimed at ammunition upgrading were thoroughly tested at proving grounds, and only after all of requirements were fulfilled they were ready to enter series production. By this unmistakable design philosophy we have created the family of 155mm ammunition which have following features, which are placing our rounds among the best available on the market today:

• highly energetic powder charges enabling long ranges, yet having very little influence on barrel wear, which is very important for heavy artillery systems
• increasing the range has been accomplished either by aerodynamic optimization of front ogive and/or adding base-bleed unit, or adding basebleed unit into standard projectiles without harming projectile’s accuracy and terminal efficiency
• by using modern explosives and fuses we have enhanced lethality of our projectiles comparing to other projectiles offered on the market
• Yugoimport ammunition is well known for it’s reliability and simplicity
• longevity which is secured by certain both chemical and physical modernization of ammunition components
     
     
Modern solutions have been applied in developing II generation shells. These include: optimised aero-dynamic shape securing external ballistic characteristics, accuracy and precision at all ranges; appliance of advanced shell body casting technology which provides forming of a great number of fragments, has been applied in production of the shell body.

This technology, together with the TNT/RDX explosive charge provides optimum efficiency at target. The new generation shell weight corresponds to the heavy shell weights of the previous generation and importantly increased their range, precision and terminal efficiency.
