Navy enhances warhead for Marine helicopters

Press release here.

New Flachette rounds for the 2.75 inch rockets for the helicopters.

The 149 Mod 0 Flechette warhead is three times the size of the old variant for each individual dart. The new flechette is comparable to a 5.56 millimeter round with regard to weight and velocity and impacts a larger area of ground compared to high explosive rockets.


Sounds like fun.
