The 76mm L62 HE–PD round is designed and manufactured by Simmel Difesa to be fired by all OTO Melara gun systems and equivalent. It is filled with HE (High Explosive) and fitted with a PD (Point Detonating) fuze. The High-Explosive charge is initiated by the fuze functioning at the impact against the target. This cartridge is used against low flying aircrafts and ground targets.

 

The projectile consists of a steel shell filled with High Explosive and a point-detonating fuze. The fuze has two independent mechanical safeties. The projectile is assembled on a brass cartridge case which is filled with a multi-perforated single base propellant and fitted with a percussion primer.
