M913 ESIP Projectile, 105MM, HERA

The 105MM, High Explosive Rocket Assisted (HERA) projectile was developed to provide increased range and lethality for the M119 howitzer fielded with the light divisions. The projectile consists of TNT loaded, high fragmentation steel warhead. A rocket motor initiated by a pyrotechnic delay assembly at approximately 15 seconds in flight provides the maximum range of 19.5 km. In the rocket off mode, 14.5 km is obtained. The M913 HERA was Type Classified Standard in November 1990.
