Metal Parts for 5 Inch 54 Caliber Naval Gun Ammunition

The MK64 5 inch 54 caliber naval projectile is the basic round of ammunition for the U.S. Navy's main armament systems.

Although intended for use primarily against naval or other surface targets, the 5 inch 54 caliber projectile can also be used as an anti-aircraft projectile.

The rounds are of modern design with a provision for deep intrusion fuses. The forged steel projectiles have a long and streamlined outline, especially the ogive, together with a distinctive boat tail and flat base. The single, wide rotating band is made of copper.

The MK64 5 inch 54 caliber naval projectile is currently in production at at Scranton Operations.
