MELTS EVEN THE STRONGEST
MODERN ARMORS
HARD ARMOR PENETRATING INCENDIARY (HAPI)

 

DragonEye™ from Chesapeake Cartridge Corporation is the first of its kind hard armor penetrating incendiary (HAPI) ammunition – developed to defeat recent advancements in enemy armor technology.The DragonEye™ enhanced incendiary core violently erupts at extremely high temperatures on impact – melting even the strongest modern armors and resulting in devastating internal damage to armored vehicles.

DragonEye™ is optimized for use in machine guns, and features Chesapeake’s exclusive NiPac™ nickel alloy, low heat transfer case. The Chesapeake NiPac™ case keeps the machine gun chamber up to 20 per cent cooler during periods of extended fire, enhancing gun life and serviceability. DragonEye™ is available only for military/law enforcement sales.
