This cartridge is used to harass personnel by emitting irritant fumes. The complete round consists of a projectile body with a detachable base plug, a time fuze, and a tail assembly. The steel tube body is designed to accommodate an expelling charge immediately below the fuze, and the base plug is attached with four equally spaced shear pins. The body contains four canisters of CS pyrotechnic mix, each with a small charge of starter mix. An aluminum baffle separates the expelling charge from...

Functioning

In firing an electric current transmitted by the firing mechanism in the weapon activates the primer, which ignites the propellant. The propellant gases, escaping through perforations in the cartridge case, force the cartridge out of the gun tube and propel it to the target. Unlike other types of fixed ammunition, the cartridge case remains fixed after firing and leaves the weapon with the projectile. The cartridge is spin stabilized in flight. Upon impact, the functioning of the fuze detonates...
