The invention specifically relates to a projectile propellant charge having a first end (9) facing the projectile (4) and a second end (10) facing the back (3) of the weapon. The electrothermal energy is then supplied to the propellant charge, beginning in the first end thereof and then successively to the second end thereof by feeding the current at each point of time over an axially restricted part (15) of the propellant charge.
[ We claim:] [1.] A method for electrically controlling the mass burning rate of a compact propellant charge, said method comprising initiating a burning of a compact propellant charge having a compact mass of propellant and an electrically conductive material dispersed therein, controlling the amount of propellant mass that is initiated at each point of time during said burning by feeding an electric current to said conductive material over a select zone of said mass, said current having sufficient power to instantly heat said zone to ignition temperatu...
