Default Warhead data

I have a plan to add many other man portable anti armor weapon systems.

For the life of me I can't figure out what formula they came up with to figure armor penetration and e-factor.

The LAW and the RPG-7 seem equivalent until you get to damage. The stats for an RPG-7 are twice as effect as a LAW except both are class D anti-armor weapons.

Need more Soviet Bloc weapons to for survivors of air landed forces and troops from Cuba.

Anyway. Anyone know what the formula was for a rockets stats?

I came up with a formula that works. I compared it to the one that Kevin developed and it is bang on.

Explosive DPW Formula
((Explosive weight in kg / 0.563) x 1300) x RE

RE (Relative Effectiveness) Values for Explosive Fillers

PETN: 1.25
RDX: 1.22
Nitroglycerin: 1.12
Composition B: 1.01
Composition A4: 1.01
Composition C4: 1.00
Torpex: 0.94
Tetryl: 0.94
Tetrytol 75/25: 0.90
Amatol 80/20: 0.88
Pentolite: 0.88
Tritonal: 0.83
TNT: 0.75
Explosive D: 0.74
Picric Acid: 0.70
M1 Dynamite: 0.69
Guncotton: 0.69
Dynamite (60%): 0.62
Nitrostarch: 0.60
Gelignite (60%): 0.57
Dynamite (40%): 0.49
Black Powder: 0.41
Mercury Fulminate: 0.38
Ammonium Nitrate: 0.31
Gelignite (40%): 0.31
Lead Azide: 0.29

To convert real world explosive RE values, times it by 0.75 to come up with
The Morrow Project ones.

From page 38 3d edition.

The only case in which the E-factor formula is not used is in the case of armor penetrating (shape charged) explosive warheads. In the case of these weapons the E-factor is found by determining how much armor the weapon penetrates. The Armor class of the weapons penetration is taken as that weapons E- factor.

Name M72A2 LAW
Cal. 66mm
E-Factor
Wt. (Empty) n/a
Min. Range 50m
Eff. Range 350m
Max. Range 1000m
Burst Radius 5m
Type of Fire Single shot disposable
Rate of Fire Single
Feed Device n/a
Feed Device Wt. n/a
Basic Load 1
Load Wt. 2.37 kg
Total Wt.
Additional Comments: A lightweight, disposable, rocket launcher firing a high explosive warhead. The warheads will penetrate 28 centimeters of steel. The “back blast” from the weapon prevents it from being fired from inside a room smaller than 5x5 meters.

Found in Load out: #1, 9,

RPD-7D Anti-Tank Launcher
E-Factor: 1030
Weight (Empty): 6.8kg
Minimum Range: 30m
Effective Range: 300m
Max. Range: 920m
Type of Fire: Single Shot
Burst Radius: 5m
Round Weight: 2.3kg
Anti-Armor Class: D
Basic Load: 2 rounds

Additional Comments: The RPD-7D is the standard anti-tank launcher of
the Warsaw Pact Forces, although it was beingsuperseded by newer designs like the RPD and RPG-18 by the time the War broke out. The basic design is quite simple and effective, though the round can be pushed off-target by strong crosswinds. This particular version can be disassembled into two parts to shorten the launch tube for the convenience of paratroops.

The RPG-7V is a recoilless, shoulder-fired, muzzle-loaded, reloadable, antitank grenade launcher. It fires a variety of rocket-assisted grenades
from a 40-mm smoothbore launcher tube. It is the standard squad antitank weapon in use by the OPFOR. The RPG-7V is light enough to be
carried and fired by one person. However, an assistant grenadier normally deploys to the left of the gunner to protect him from small arms fire.
The RPG-7V requires a well-trained gunner to estimate ranges and lead distances for moving targets. Crosswinds as low as 7 miles per hour can
complicate the gunner's estimate and reduce first-round hit probability to 50% at ranges beyond 180 meters.

There's the two light Anti Armor weapons.

Thanks Nuke11 by the way.

As you can see the Writers worked up the E-factor for the RPG-7 for "Final Watch".

Anybody know by what formula as the normal one would not apply for a shape charged weapon.

Next any Idea how they came up with the DPW for the manufactured weapons like the LAW. Its not like the manufacturer was handing out the recipe.

Thanks in advance!
