Expal ammunition completes Spain's firing tests
Expal’s extended range 155mm ammunition has successfully completed firing tests with the Spanish Army, carried out at the Torregorda Test Center in Cádiz, Spain.
The ammunition has been developed as part of an agreement signed between the Spanish Army and Expal in 2018 for the supply of 52 calibre munitions for the SIAC 155mm howitzer and 39 calibre for the M109A5. The agreement includes extended range projectiles equipped with base bleed unit, modular charges and EC-102 electronic fuze.
The ammunition's aerodynamic design and advanced energetic material increases the range and the advanced electronic fuze maximises effects.
The new ammunition has been developed in collaboration with the Spanish General Direction of Armament and Materia, the Spanish Ministry of Defense and the Logistical Support Command of the Spanish Army.
