    Hi WEBEREOD, has the M 94 in the picture has plastic explosive in the nose cone?. The ones I found in Bosnia where partilay filed and had explosines in the cone. Here a cut away I made whichs shows excatly as I found them.

    Why would anyone do that? The way the explosive is shown in your cutaway would render the shaped charge ineffective. The cone wouldn't serve any purpose. Why the air gap behind the cone? It just doesn't make any sense to me.

    Yes the tech intel report I have on the M 94 KB 2 has the entire warhead filled with a PE. Hadn't really noticed it until SLAP asked the question why. But it is filed, the report says it is a modified M 93 KB1 so I asume they were after a larger HE AP warhead.
