A drag reduction system, more specifically a forward mounted drag reduction system for use on an extended range artillery shell, includes a forward end comprising a fuse, an aft located base unit and located therebetween a shell body defining a cavity which comprises a payload, a forwardly located gas generator capable of generating a gas flow, and an ignition device to ignite the gas generator after the shell is launched.
1. An extended range, gun-launched artillery shell, comprising: a forward end comprising a fuze;an aft located base unit;a shell body located between the fuze and the base unit, the shell body defining a cavity which comprises a non-gas generating payload;a forwardly located gas generator comprising a plurality of separate portions of an energetic material each configured to generate a gas flow; anda plurality of ignition devices each configured to separately and independently activate the respective portion of the energetic material of the gas generator...
