Metal Parts for 155MM M107 HE

High Explosive (HE) Projectile

The M107 is a conventional, hollow forged steel projectile filled with TNT high-explosive. A TNT supplemental charge may be fitted to projectiles loaded with a deep intrusion fuze cavity and is removable for assembling proximity fuzes such as the M514, M728 and M783 to the projectile.

A swagged gilding metal rotating band encircles the projectile near its base. The rotating band is protected from damage during shipping and handling by a composite grommet which is removed before firing. A threaded, lifting plug closes the fuze cavity to prevent damage to the threads during handling and storage.

The M795 is currently in production at Scranton Operations.
