Tungsten Alloy Cluster Munition

What is Tungsten Alloy Cluster Munition

A tungsten alloy cluster munition , also known as a tungsten alloy cluster bomb, is a weapon containing multiple explosive submunitions. A cluster munition is a form of air-dropped or ground-launched explosive weapon that releases or ejects smaller submunitions. Commonly, this is a cluster bomb that ejects explosive bomblets that are designed to kill personnel and destroy vehicles.

Tungsten alloy cluster munition are defined and prohibited as a category of weapons. A tungsten alloy cluster munition is a form of air-dropped or ground-launched explosive weapon that releases or ejects smaller submunitions. Commonly, this is a cluster bomb that ejects explosive bomblets that are designed to kill personnel and destroy vehicles.

Tungsten alloy cluster munition roughly serve three purposes:
firstly to defeat soft targets, i e personnel;
secondly to defeat armoured of light armoured vehicles;
thirdly to contribute to the suppressive effect, i e to avoid enemy forces to use their weapons without inflicting too much damage upon them.

Tungsten Alloy Swaging Rod for Cluster Munition

Tungsten alloy swaging rod is made of tungsten rod. The density, hardness and strength of tungsten alloy swaging rod is higher than tungsten alloy rod. Tungsten alloy swaging rod has been widely used for cluster munition.

Most cluster munitions contain shaped charge warheads which made by tungsten alloy swaging rod to pierce the armor of tanks and armored fighting vehicles.Tungsten allot swaging rod used for cluster bomb that ejects explosive bomblets that are designed to kill personnel and destroy vehicles or to destroy runways or electric power transmission lines, disperse chemical or biological weapons, or to scatter land mines. Some submunition-based weapons can disperse non-munitions, such as leaflets.

Tungsten alloy cluster munitions can penetrate many metres of reinforced concrete or rock in seconds. It is equipped with a detonator controlled by a computer that measures the density of the material passed through and, when the warhead reaches the targeted void or a set depth, detonates the warhead, which then has an explosive and incendiary effect. The tungsten alloy burns fiercely and rapidly, carbonising everything in the void.
