The present invention is a monolithic ballasted penetrator capable of delivering a working payload to a hardened target, such as reinforced concrete. The invention includes a ballast made from a dense heavy material insert and a monolithic case extending along an axis and consisting of a high-strength steel alloy. The case includes a nose end containing a hollow portion in which the ballast is nearly completely surrounded so that no movement of the ballast relative to the case is possible during impact with a hard target. The case is cast around the ball...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A monolithic ballasted kinetic energy penetrator comprising:a monolithic case made of a first material, said case having a case axis aligned with the direction of penetrating motion; and five continguous regions comprising:a nose end having a generally ogival outer shape;a pointed tip of said nose end;a continuous outer surface extending from said pointed tip to;a middle section having a continuous, unjointed surface comprising an elongated, generally cylindrical or conical shape extending along said case axis; extending toa b...
