Description

FIELD OF TECHNOLOGY

The invention relates to ammunition and firearms. The present invention, in particular, is applicable to the assembly of trunks having a variety of shells laid along the axis in the barrel together with individual selectively flammable propellant charges designed to propel the shells until the shells are fired sequentially through the muzzle of the barrel. Such barrel assemblies will hereinafter be referred to as "described type" barrel assemblies.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to ammunition and firearms, in particular of the type described, disclosed in earlier international patent applications PCT / AU94 / 00124 and PCT / AU96 / 00459 registered in the name of the present inventor.

Although tubular shells are already used in some special applications such as supersonic shells, the applicant is not aware of any tubular shells suitable for stacking in a barrel with selectively flammable propellant charges, and in particular, tubular shells suitable for assembling trunks of the described type are not known.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It is desirable to create assemblies of barrels for ammunition and firearms, electronically controlled, in particular, of the type described, which are designed to be fired by shells of a tubular type, and to create tubular shells for this purpose.

According to one embodiment of the present invention, there is provided an assembly of trunks of the type described, comprising:

a barrel having a muzzle;

many tubular shells laid along the axis in the barrel with the possibility of operational tight contact with the barrel;

locking means located between the tubular shells for operatively closing the barrel between the tubular shells; and

selectively flammable propellant charges placed in each projectile and flammable to eject an adjacent front projectile and associated locking means through the muzzle of the barrel.

Preferably, the tubular shells are located close to each other, although they can be separated by a propellant charge; it is also preferred that each projectile includes a tubular body having locking means associated with at least a rear end of the body.

The locking means may also close the rear end of the projectile. Alternatively, a separate locking means can be used for the front and rear ends of each projectile so that the locking means for the front end does not work when the charge in the barrel ignites so as not to interfere with the combustion products to eject the front shell from the barrel.

The locking means may be located separately from the tubular body or it may be attached to the front tubular body. Tubular shells can be formed so as to have the desired aerodynamic characteristics. The shape of the inner surface of the tubular body, when used with locking means, can act as an axial stabilizer during projectile flight. Alternatively, the weight of the tubular body can be distributed so that one end is heavier than the other.

The locking means is a barrel wall seal element located between adjacent parts of the tubular body. Each wall seal element can expand and create close contact with the barrel. Alternatively, the tubular shells may have additional outer parts of the end wall that abut against each other, and the wall sealing member is sandwiched between the inner end parts of the wall.

In the aforementioned first configuration, the wall sealing member may be placed between the ends of adjacent tubular shells. The wall sealing element may have a shape that is not deformed in the operating mode. Alternatively, the peripheral part of the wall sealing member can be formed in such a way that it expands outward between adjacent tubular shells until it makes close contact with the barrel with axial compression force applied to the end surfaces. For low-pressure applications, such deformation is not necessary for tight contact with the barrel.

The end surfaces of adjacent tubular shells can expand radially with respect to the barrel, or the end surfaces of adjacent tubular shells can be formed with the calculation of adhesion with the corresponding additional wedge surfaces on the peripheral part of the clamped wall seal element.

The tubular bodies of adjacent shells may overlap to provide telescopic connection between adjacent shells. For this purpose, shells can include external parts of the end wall that overlap the internal parts of the end wall of an adjacent projectile, and wall sealing elements can be sandwiched between additional parts of the internal end walls of the telescopic shells.

If desired, the telescopic parts of the adjacent projectiles can include a thin-walled part that can either expand outward to close contact with the adjacent part of the telescopic projectile to prevent propellant gases from leaking into the barrel, or inserted into an adjacent propellant charge. Alternatively, the outer telescopic portion may expand outward to increase the close contact of the projectile with the barrel before it is ejected from the barrel.

Each clamped wall seal element may also respond to propellant pressure at its front end to seal the end of the firing projectile and to prevent ignition of the charge of the adjacent firing projectile. Such a reactive seal may also occur between adjacent ends of the shells and / or between the front shell and the wall sealing member.

Ignition of propellant charges can be carried out as described in my previous international applications. For this purpose, each selectively flammable propellant charge may include an electric capsule connected to two separate annular contacts surrounding the projectile and coming into contact with corresponding electrical contacts passing through the barrel and connected to the electronic control means.

The locking means may be an integral part of the projectile and may include movable segments of the wall or wall, which may expand from a closed position to an open position, mainly corresponding to the configuration of the barrel. In the closed position, the wall segments can respond to the ignition of the front propellant charge in order to maintain or increase the effect of the barrel seal with locking means.

Each shell with its propelling charge is prepared before loading into the barrel, but if desired, the barrel can be loaded by sequentially inserting a round tubular body having an open front end, then a propelling charge, accompanied by the closing of the open end, either as a separate action, or as a result of placing the next round tubular body to the desired position.

Another objective of the invention is the development of a projectile for a shot from the assembly of the barrel of a firearm, wherein said projectile includes:

an open-ended tubular body designed for loading into the barrel assembly barrel and for creating close operational contact with the barrel;

a wall sealing element inserted between the specified tubular body and the tubular body of an adjacent projectile for the operational closure of the barrel between shots; and

selectively flammable propellant charge in the tubular body between adjacent projectiles, while the propellant is ignited to eject the tubular body of the specified projectile through the muzzle of the barrel.

DESCRIPTION OF PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

In the embodiment shown in FIGS. 1A-1D, the barrel assembly 10 has a plurality of shells 11 stacked axially end to end in the barrel 12, which are designed to be fired by electric or other means in a specific sequence, as described in previously filed international patent applications or, as described in known sources.

Each projectile contains a tubular body and a sealing element of the barrel 14 located between the tubular bodies 13a, 13b, 13c and 13d and separating them from each other, and also contains a propelling charge 15 located behind the sealing element 14. The propelling charge 15a, for example, is placed in the rear tubular body 13b between the respective sealing elements 14a and 14b. In this embodiment, an additional propellant charge 15d is placed at the rear of the barrel assembly to move the last tubular body 13d.

From FIG. 1A, it can be seen that the front annular end 18 of each body 13 extends inward and backward, forming a partially conical end surface 19. The conical end surface interacts with an additional partially conical surface 22 formed around the peripheral rear portion of the barrel seal 14, as shown in figure 1B. An additional partially conical front surface 23 is formed around the outer edge of the seal 14, as shown in FIG. 1C. Another additional partially conical front surface 23 is connected with the return surface 24 to create a recess 25, which includes an additional rear end wall 26 of each tubular body 13.

Note that the end wall 26 is concave inward, while the rest of the tubular body 13 has a constant tubular section, although, if desired, it can be formed in the form of a venturi passing through the body 13.

The return part of the wall 26 is captured by the sealing element 24 when firing the front housing 13 from the barrel, as shown in figure 1B. As shown in FIG. 1C, the sealing element 14 may be ejected from the tubular body 13 during flight as a result of rotation of the body 13 due to a thread provided in the barrel 12, or it may remain in the body 13 during flight, as shown in FIG. 1D. For this purpose, the sealing element 14 can be attached to the housing 13 with screws, studs, gluing, crimping, or in any other way.

In use, the barrel assembly 10 is charged with shells 11 in which the empty tubular body 13a is the front shell. When the front propellant charge 15 a is ignited in the next adjacent housing 13 b, the resulting gas pressure will act on the front and rear mechanical seal elements 14 a, 14 b covering the ignited propellant charge. Under the influence of gas pressure, the front sealing element 14a is ejected from the barrel 12 together with the front housing 13 a. At the same time, the gas pressure presses the rear sealing element against the rear sealing element 14b along the axis and to the rear housing 13b, causing a radial expansion of the conical end portion 19 of the rear housing.

This leads to jamming of the front annular end 13 of the rear casing 13b and ensures tight contact with the barrel 12, and seals the sealing element 14b until it is in tight contact with the conical part of the end 19, ensuring complete absence of leakage of combustion products into the propellant charge of the subsequent charge 15b. Then, as shown in FIG. 1B, the empty housing 13b may be ejected from the barrel assembly 10 by igniting the propellant charge 15b in the next rear housing 13c.

In the barrel assembly embodiment shown in FIGS. 2A-2D, each projectile 30 has a portion of the tubular body 31 provided with outwardly extending wall segments 33 that are adjacent to each other or overlap to form respective seals for the tubular body 31. These segments 33 form the Central parts 35, which abut against each other when the shells 30 are placed along the length of the barrel 36.

The preferred shape of the segments of the wall 33 is an oppositely arranged pair of segments, as shown in figure 3, located between the extensions of the housing 38 having end walls 39 that are adjacent to each other when they are located in the barrel 36.

The front segments 33 lie freely along the length of the barrel 36 when igniting the propellant charge 37 located in the projectile 30. When the charge is ignited, the powder gases push the front projectile 30, partially shown in Figure 2A. This action feeds the next front projectile 30 with the tubular body 31 in the barrel, the body being closed only from the rear end by the rear sealing segments 33, which deflect back to provide a contact portion 35, as shown in FIG. 2B. The contact portion 35 is adjacent to the contact portion 35 formed on the front side of the diverging segments 33 of the next adjacent rear projectile 30.

When the propellant charge 37 in this next adjacent projectile 30 is ignited, the front segments 33 open so that the pressure of the combustion products is directed to the rear end surfaces of the segments 33 at the rear end of the front housing 31, as a result of which the housing is ejected from the barrel 36. During this operation, it is prepared next shot to the shot.

Segments can be many, mainly triangular segments, whose bases are located on the periphery of the housing 31 and extending inward, forming a pyramidal seal.

If desired, the rear sealing segments 33 can be attached to the tubular body 31 using hinge means 32. These segments are opened upon departure from the barrel under pressure of air passing through the tubular body 31, as shown in figure 20. If desired, these segments 33 can be equipped with stabilizers or other protruding parts to stabilize the flight of the housing 31 or to give it a rotational movement.

From the above it can be seen that the high pressure arising from the combustion of the propellant charge and moving the front housing 31 acts on the rear part of the closing projectile, pressing it to the front edge of the next projectile and preventing unwanted shock ignition of the propellant charge of the subsequent projectile, thus guaranteeing consistency shots from these weapons with the desired frequency.

During operation, the sealing elements of the barrel 14 can freely move and behave as discarded sections, separated by rotation of the tubular projectile, if it is fired from a rifled barrel, or these sections are separated by air pressure during the flight of the projectile. After separating these sections, the projectile improves its aerodynamic performance when flying over a relatively long distance, when firing from an airplane, or when the projectile is used to intercept a missile, in particular, in the defensive system of the ship.

However, in some applications it may be advisable to fix the seal elements 14 to the tubular body 31. For example, closed shells can be fired from a variety of barrels to strike mines hidden in the ground during clearance. Such a projectile will act as a bucket that takes the earth into the cavity of the housing 31 and carries the earth away from the place of the mine. This effect is in addition to the usual kinetic impact on the ground and detonation of the charge min. Firing multiple shells from multiple barrels is thus a potentially improved means for opening and / or neutralizing land mines.

Shells laid in the barrel are in contact with each other and are in a predetermined position. In fact, shells use a cartridge case, which also acts as a shell.

In the barrel assembly 40 shown in FIG. 4, the barrel 41 is shown partially in section in its front end or section of the barrel so that only the last two shells 42 and 43 are shown after the front shell (not shown) has been thrown out of the barrel. In this embodiment, the projectiles 42 and 43 are telescopic when the outer front end 44 of the rear projectile 43 exits the inner end 45 of the intermediate projectile 47.

All end parts are partially conical with corresponding additional external end surfaces 46 and 47, which are adjacent to each other, and the internal end surfaces 45 and 49 are separated by a certain distance from each other and adjacent to the wall sealing elements 50. The wall sealing element includes a peripheral part 52, also having a partially tapered end surface 54. In this embodiment, the telescopic portions of the wall 44 and 45 are relatively long and are joined by a friction fit one inside the other.

During the shot during the ejection of a front projectile (not shown) from the barrel, the pressure of the combustion products acts on the sealing element of the wall 50 of the intermediate projectile 42, which contains an ignited propellant charge. This pressure presses the end 54 of the wall sealing element 50 against the additional inner end surface 49 of the rear projectile 43. When the front projectile leaves the bore, pressure acts on the front ends 47, 49 of the rear projectile 43 and moves the intermediate projectile 42 out and back, jamming the rear surface 46 in relation to the front outer surface 47, performing a seal between them. Outward pressure also expands the front end 51 of the front outer end portion 44 of the rear projectile 43 to contact the barrel 41.

The inner surfaces 48, 49 also wedge into tight contact with the peripheral part 52 of the wall sealing member 50, preventing impact from ignition of the propellant charge on the rear projectile 43. In addition, the pressure of the combustion products will tend to expand the inner rear end portion 45 of the intermediate projectile 42 into a dense contact with the outer front end portion 44 of the rear projectile 43 to minimize gas leakage into the barrel 41.

As shown in the drawing, the capsule 55 is present in each selectively flammable propellant charge 56 and is connected to the positive and negative current collectors 57, 58 located on the outer periphery of the shells 42, 43. The barrel 41 is provided with corresponding spring contacts entering the barrel and interacting with the corresponding current collectors 57, 58.

Appropriate electronic means are provided for actuating the capsule and igniting the propellant charges 56. These peripheral contacts 57, 58 are used in all projectiles shown in the drawings, in particular in FIG. 3.

The barrel assembly 60 shown in FIG. 5 is similar to the embodiment shown in FIG. 4, with the difference between the shells 61 being the presence of an annular skirt in the barrel 64. In the embodiment shown in FIG. 4, the shells 42,43 have an inner wall that is folded inward in relation to the wall 63, and the shells 61 when fired expand outward. It is believed that such a device provides an improved aerodynamic configuration, but it provides a less effective seal than the device shown in figure 4.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION

The barrel assembly and tubular shells of the present invention can be used in infantry firearms, but they would be more suitable for shells with a diameter of 20 mm and above. It should be noted that each barrel seal can interact with the front round end of an adjacent tubular projectile, either by expanding the annular end outward to contact the barrel channel, jamming the barrel seal in tight contact with the barrel or with the front round end, or providing tight contact of the seal element with barrel or with a partially conical inner end of the tubular projectile, and without significant expansion of this front end for tight contact with the barrel.

This jamming can be achieved by keeping the jamming angles relatively steep by providing a front end stop that stops the backward movement of the sealing element at a point where the seal between the sealing element and the tube projectile has already been reached, but the front end of the tube projection has not radially expanded yet.

Alternatively, the front end can be made strong enough to resist outward expansion under the influence of jamming created by the action of the front projectile. Such a seal is more suitable for low pressure applications at a low initial projectile velocity.

Although the drawings show shells stacked in a row in place in the barrel, the shells can also be fed individually into the barrel from an external magazine in the usual way. For this purpose, each projectile may include a closing wall, respectively attached to the rear end of the projectile and a bolt or the like, for fixing the propellant charge in the projectile.

The barrel assemblies of the present invention, which use open tubular shells, may also be useful for firing from underwater objects such as ships or submarines or from hidden ground defenses. For example, submarines can use such barrel assemblies for self-defense, for the destruction of submarine mines, torpedoes or rockets.

It should be understood that the above is given only as an illustrative example of the invention, and possible modifications and changes to these devices are obvious to experts in the art, which does not go beyond the scope of the invention covered by the claims.
