AMCP 706-250, ARMY MATERIAL COMMAND PAMPHLET: RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF MATERIEL - ENGINEERING DESIGN HANDBOOK | GUNS SERIES - GUNS-GENERAL (AUG-1964)

AMCP 706-250, ARMY MATERIAL COMMAND PAMPHLET: RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF MATERIEL - ENGINEERING DESIGN HANDBOOK | GUNS SERIES - GUNS-GENERAL (AUG-1964)., This handbook deals with the general subject of guns. It highlights early developments, classifies and describes guns according to military characteristics and usage, and again, according to design characteristics. It deals with the major components and assemblies in sufficient detail only to make clear their functions, their operation and their relationships to other assemblies and to the gun as a whole. It introduces problems encountered in design for which specific procedures for solution will be presented in other handbooks. It is intended that other handbooks of the Guns Series cover in more detail problems relating to gun tubes (barrels), gun forgings, breech closures, breech rings, firing mechanisms, extracting and ejecting mechanisms, breech operating mechanisms, loading mechanisms and muzzle devices. Automatic weapons is intended as the subject, of still another handbook. Carriages and Mounts is the subject of a series already prepared. That series covers cradles. recoil systems, top carriages, bottom carriages, equilibrators, elevating mechanisms, traversing mechanisms, and carriages and mounts—general. Ammunition and ballistics are covered in other handbooks and this volume treats these subjects only as necessary to provide an understanding of the interrelationship between these subjects and guns.
