Military jargon. Refers to the use of a combination of anti-personnel and incendiary ammunition, especially in the use of artillery. The anti-personnel ammunition-such as high-explosive artillery rounds-deal with infantry, while incendiary rounds destroy enemy equipment and ammunition or fuel stores as well as setting fire to nearby tents, trees, and other surroundings.
