The 155mm shell in some of its types. The basic shell is high explosive, but there is also white phosphorous, illumination, scatterable mines, etc. One of the favorites is the Dual Purpose Improved Conventional Munition, or DPICM. This artillery shell will open up at its target and out come 88 sub-munitions, much like grenades. And on top of the podium here you can see a Copperhead round, meant to be laser guided to an accuracy where you can kill tanks or other armored vehicles with a single round. The standard weight of the 155mm shell is 95.0 pounds.
