The 155 mm ECv ammunition perfectly enables to train procedures of loading ammunition, operator’s firing procedures, allows conducting firing on tactical exercises, firing demonstrations and ceremonial salvoes or on the ultra-short-ranges where ammunition with projectile cannot be used. The endanger area is only up to 100 m from a gun muzzle.
A complete 155 mm ECv ammunition consists of one special blank plug instead of projectile and two modular charges ECv.
Special blank plug ensures complete burning of the two modular charges ECv and is disintegrated to small particles which are expelled from the barrel. Energy created during firing is sufficient to ensure automatic functioning of a weapon system even in extreme conditions.
The cost of training is reduced due to lower purchase and training operating expenses (a gun barrel wearing out, transportation and firing range costs, etc.) that is fraction compare to firing from life or practice ammunition.
