An armor-piercing projectile has a steel jacket threadedly or otherwise positively connected with a core which has a forwardly projecting point and leaves a space to the rear of the jacket receiving an incendiary charge and a winged tail unit mechanically connected with that charge. Upon penetration of an armor plate, the tail unit is torn from the jacket and extracts the incendiary charge which then ignites and destroys the surrounding armor.
