Advantages Of Combustible Cartridge Cases

Combustible cartridge cases bring numerous advantages compared with conventional metallic cases:

The combustible case is chemically compatible with single, double and triple base propellants. Advanced, high energy granular and stick propellants are used in existing applications. These cases can be expected to survive 20 years of controlled field storage. The advantages of combustible ordnance can be applied to most high pressure tank main armament system requirements.
