Salvage Fusing 
 1). As a last resort, it detonates in "hopes" of killing the target. 
 2). Also, detonates when it detects that its destruction is eminent. 

Fire Stream, A.K.A., Water Stream, Solid Water Stream:
Industrial Strength

Spray; Misting, Foging Nozzle; Water Droplets:
 
Combination Nozzle
Using Combination Style Nozzle
Smooth Bore Nozzle:  for Solid Water Streams
 
 
Input diameter to output orifice is 2:1

Monitor: a Directable Fire Fighting Water Jet

           with Solid Stream Nozzle
Stream Straightener:

Helps to extends Nozzle's Reach before Stream break-up.

Nozzle Reaction:
Newton's Third Law of Motion, "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." This is the reason you see two or three firemen manning one hand line.


Continuity Equation: (Conservation of Mass)
Among other things, the Continuity Equation predicts that a stream of water leaving a faucet will narrow as it falls--an accelerating stream contracts. This property should aid Stream Integrity for AWCS' 135° Downward angle. 
 
Fig. 1
Continuity Equation states that the Mass (water) entering a pipe of n" diameter, is the same as the Mass exiting a pipe of  m" diameter (n" is twice as large as m"), and the velocity of the Mass is increased by the ratio n : m, that is, in this example the velocity has doubled.

From the above: if  the Mass is subject to gravity it will accelerate, which has the same effect as if the Mass were traveling through a pipe of decreasing diameter.   see Fig. 2
