Semi-Armor Piercing High Explosive Incendiary-Trace
The Improved 25mm cartridge, the PGU-32/U SAPHEI-T, was designed to provide aerial and surface gun platforms with improved effectiveness against soft and light armored targets.
The PGU-32/U incorporates the basic multipurpose technology providing: inherent detonation delay; improved graze sensitivity; and light armor capability. All of these features give these platforms improved capability on target over the current inventory 25mm HEI ammunition.
The PGU-32/U SAPHEI-T is type classified for service use in the AV-8/B Harrier and the MK38 Navy platforms. The cartridge is fully interoperable in the Marine Corps LAV-AD, LAV-25 and the Army Bradley Fighting Vehicle.
The PGU-32/U replaces the PGU-25/B HEI and is fully interoperable in the NATO 25mm gun systems. The PGU-32/U is a ballistic match to the PGU-20/U API and the newly developed PGU-33/U Target Practice Frangible-Tracer (TPF-T).
