For use with low, medium and high pressure81mm mortars (M1, M29/M29A1, M252/L16A1 and equivalents), to train mortar crewsand forward observers.

 

The HE-TP round is ballistically similar to theHE round and hence fires with the same firingtables. It uses the same propelling chargesystem as the live rounds. The tail assemblyis fitted with the ignition cartridge and the“horse-shoe” type charge increments (2 for low pressure, 4 for medium pressure and 5 for highpressure mortars). On impact the Point Detonating fuze functions causing a pyrotechnic chargeto ignite which yields a spotting flash and a bang similar to live HE bomb while greatly reducingrisks from fragmentation and blast effects.
