    No, its purely for anti-material and anti-personnel effect.

    Incendiary, designed to ignite gas, diesel, hydraulic fluids, oil, etc.....the more modern rounds use Zirconium in a sponge form, solid zirconium metal is older technology. More exactly:
    "In an oxygen atmosphere, finely divided Zirconium burns with the highest known temperature for a metal flame: 4460 oC.(4) Powdered zirconium can spontaneously ignite in air."

    388 views as of my writing this, 2 pages of replies, and NO-ONE posts a favorite in the spirit of the OP? Was it a stupid question? Like admitting you have a favorite child?

    No not a stupid question at all, Sometimes threads have a habit of going off on a tangent, and this often takes away from the original purpose of the thread. There is an old thread covering a very simmilar topic and it can be found in the link below, best Weasel
