This updated volume concentrates on the principles of ballistics, and is illustrated by reference to military applications. The subject is broadly divided into its components of internal, intermediate, external and terminal ballistics. Faced with the complexity and sophistication of modern hardware, the fighting soldier needs to appreciate the task of telling a design team what the equipment has to do, and needs to know enough technology to understand the design implications of what is being asked for. As the book is intended for use by both army officer and scientist, some of the chapters are divided into two sections. The first part is largely qualitative while the second part provides a mathematical background for further study.
