Medium Caliber Ammunition (MCA) includes 20 mm, 25 mm, 30 mm, and 40 mm armor-piercing, high-explosive, smoke, illumination, training and antipersonnel cartridges with the capability to defeat light armor, materiel and personnel targets. These munitions provide overwhelming lethality in MCA and point- and area-target engagement via medium hand-held and crew-served weapons.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
Standard ammunition provides the warfighter with the necessary lethality needed to defeat the enemy. Specialty 40 mm rounds provide specific tools for the warfighter (e.g. illumination). The Counter-Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar (C-RAM) defends against enemy rocket, mortar and artillery fires.
