Abstract : The patent relates to a munition assembly comprising a primer, propellant, fuze, chemical agents positioned in a cartridge case and projectile. The projectile is fitted with a non-destructable polymeric impact-attenuating nose unit. The nose unit is designed to absorb the kinetic energy in the projectile to reducing the lethal potential of the projectile when fired and physically contacting personnel.
