(Improved, modernized version of High-explosive Fragmentation Anti-personnel rounds for SPG-9)


DESIGNATION
The 73 mm Round RHEF-9MA1 is the best and most powerful ammunition designed for destroying enemy troops and fire means in the open, in trenches, in hasty field shelters or brick-wall fortifications, light armoured vehicles and the infantry.
Providing enormous destructive power, this round is perfect especially against terrorists hiding in caves. Designers and technologists of ARSENAL JSCo, first in the world, developed a new design of the High-explosive fragmentation grenade using own developed pre-fragmented steel body. This innovation vigorously improves several times the destructive power and effectiveness of the Round upon impact.Used with the 73 mm ARSENAL Antitank Grenade Launchers of ATGL-H family and Russian SPG-9, the round characterizes with high accuracy, low dispersion and huge destructive power.

CONSTRUCTION
The Round RHEF-9MA1 consists of High-explosive Grenade GHEF-9MA1 and Propellant Charge CP-92.The Grenade GHEF-9MA1 is equipped with warhead and consists of pre-fragmented steel body and bursting charge of powerful explosive mixture of high-explosive action. The round is completed with point-detonating fuze AF71 with super-quick and graze (anti-ricochet) function, independent of impact angle.

FUNCTION
Before firing, take out the CP-92 from the plastic container and screw it on the Grenade.When the round is fired, the CP-92 gets activated, the pressure of its powder gases creates the required initial velocity of the Grenade, and the Stabilizer ensures its stable flight to the target.Upon impact, the point-detonating fuze AF71 gets activated, which in its turn, actuates the bursting charge of the grenade GHEF-9MA1.At the time of the grenade detonation, over than 1000 fragments of weight 1.0...2.0 g fly away, defeating the target
