Types of machine-gun bullets Aircraft
So consider the types of aircraft machine gun bullets:
Armor-piercing bullets in its transverse load approaching heavy. When you hit a solid barrier in the outer shell is destroyed, and the core penetrates the barrier.
Tracer bullets, Being able to keep track of your flight (track) white, red and green color (depending on the composition of the tracer), both are inflammatory properties and can ignite gasoline in the tanks of the aircraft or light the gas balloon.
Armor-piercing tracer bullets. Combining the properties of tracer bullets and armor is achieved by replacing the core of the lead at the head of tracer bullets on steel. Between the outer shell and steel-core bullets molded into the lead shirt.
Armor-piercing tracer bullets
Incendiary bullets. Appointment incendiary bullets - ignite in contact with gasoline in the tanks of aircraft, dry wood, straw. On the device incendiary bullets subdivided into phosphorus-inflammatory and drums.
In action incendiary bullets, especially percussion, it noted that the piercing skinned tanks at close range gasoline ignition does not occur, as the incendiary composition does not manage to ignite. The thin armor, 3-4 mm, preventing the penetration of bullets into the tank, it holds and thus improves the ignition.
Large-caliber bullets They have the same device as medium-caliber bullet: 7-8 mm; There are bullet with lead core in German silver or Tompakova shell, armor-piercing, tracer, armor-piercing tracer with a range of slopes to 2 km.
Large-caliber bullets can prevent at all distances only 25 armor thickness mm.
Armor 8-10 mm protects only in some cases at a range of not less than 1 000 d.
