160mm cartridge with volume detonating mortar round and variable propelling charge VDMM-160 to 160mm mortar MT-13 is intended to affect manpower in the open and military techniques during march, in concentration regions, points of support, defensive field works, observation points, as well as in urban built- up territories, fortification equipment, in broken grounds and armored machinery, causing heavy damages and impossibility to deliver combat minimizing civilian casualties. The damage effect is a result of an overpressure wave propagated copying the surface contour and high temperature in the fixed area of deflagrating transformation of the volume-burning composite.
