40 mm Cased Telescoped Armament System (CTAS): Ammunition (CT A)


The range of munitions developed for the 40 CTAS has been conceived to provide the operators of medium calibre systems within Armoured Fighting Vehicles and Infantry Fighting Vehicles a wide range of capabilities with levels of performance above that from weapons of a similar calibre. The currently available ammunition types are:
- General Purpose – Air Burst – Tracer (GPR-AB-T) to neutralize dismounted infantry,
- GPR – Point Detonation – Tracer (GPS-PD-T) to defeat reinforced concrete walls with delay fuze,
- Armour Piercing Fin Stabilised Discarding Sabot – Tracer (APFSDS-T) able to penetrate 140mm of RHA (frontal arc of some first generation MBT and all IFV's),
- Target Practice – Tracer (TP-T) and TP Reduced Range – Tracer (TPRR-T).


40 mm Cased Telescope Armament System Ammunition
- Munition projectile “Cased” and surrounded by propellant,
- High muzzle exit velocity across the range of munitions,
- High levels of precision,
- Cylindrical shape allowing ease of handling for automatic loading into weapon and reloading by the operator within the turret.  

Status: CTAI is currently under contract with the UK MoD and French DGA to qualify the 40 CTAS Cannon and Ammunition in readiness for use on the UK MoD WCSP and FRES-SV programmes and for the French DGA for the future EBRC programme.
