OTO VULCANO

155MM BALLISTIC EXTENDED RANGE (BER) AND GUIDED LONGE RANGE (GLR)

OTO VULCANO is a family of unguided (BER) and guided (GLR) ammunition for the 76mm, 127mm naval guns and 155mm land artillery systems.

The OTO VULCANO 155mm ammunition gives the 155/52 caliber and 155/39 caliber Howitzers the capability to extend their operative range and precision beyond the actual limits, minimizing engagement costs and collateral damages.

OTO VULCANO 155mm projectile is a sub-caliber, fin stabilized airframe, compatible with the use of standard modular charges, with no need of additional propulsion; it is loaded with Insensitive Explosive and Patented tungsten rings; the mechanical interfaces are the same as in standard 155mm ammunition.

OTO VULCANO 155mm available rounds are:

  • Ballistic Extended Range (BER) unguided multi role ammunition with multi function (altimetric, impact, delayed impact, time, self-destruction) programmable fuse
  • Guided Long Range (GLR) with canard control actuated by IMU + GPS guidance system for navigation (gliding trajectory) and possibility of terminal guidance (pull down) with optional Semi-Active-Laser (SAL)

A Mission Planning Module allows exchanging data with the Fire Direction Center for the management of the firing mission.
