A munition that is adapted to enhance fragmentation effects upon detonation includes preformed fragments between a casing and a shell. The overall mass of the preformed fragments is greater than the overall combined mass of the casing and the shell for enhancing the degree of controlled fragmentation compared to uncontrolled fragmentation. By enhancing the dispersal of controlled fragmentation, the overall fragmentation area coverage and fragmentation pattern density may also be enhanced while limiting travel of the fragmentation beyond the target area f...
1. A munition comprising: a casing;an explosive enclosed by the casing;a shell surrounding the casing; andpreformed fragments in a volume between the casing and the shell;wherein the preformed fragments have a combined mass greater than the combined mass of the casing and the shell; andwherein a ratio of the combined mass of the preformed fragments to the combined mass of the casing and the shell is in a range between 1.05:1 to 3.7:1. 2. The munition according to claim 1, wherein the preformed fragments fill the volume between the casing and the shell an...
