English term or phrase: Prime power generation
N.B. For weapon systems using sub-calibre ammunition or employing solely chemical propulsion, and ammunition therefor, see ML1. to ML4.

Note 1 ML12. includes the following when specially designed for kinetic energy weapon systems:
a. Launch propulsion systems capable of accelerating masses larger than 0.1 g to velocities in excess of 1.6 km/s, in single or rapid fire modes;
b. Prime power generation, electric armour, energy storage, thermal management, conditioning, switching or fuel-handling equipment; and electrical interfaces between power supply, gun and other turret electric drive functions;
c. Target acquisition, tracking, fire control or damage assessment systems;
d. Homing seeker, guidance or divert propulsion (lateral acceleration) systems for projectiles.

prime power generation
Explanation:
It's just what it is. The generating of prime power, i.e. primary power (as opposed to back-up or emergency power).
High specific power together with long maintenance intervals, reliable starting, suitability for continuous duty - even with frequent load changes.

Additional info from a document on prime power applications:

\"“Prime Power” is a description used by ISO 8528 for an
engine rating, it describes a variable load with an S10
duty. There are a variety of ‘duty types’ identified by IEC
34-1, ranging from S1 (continuous duty) to S10 (variable
load), with one duty point at the maximum continuous BR
rating.
A “prime power” rated generating set must
incorporate a generator able to operate within a Thermal
Class ‘H’ continuous rating at the identified maximum
continuous [100%] load condition, referred to by ISO
8528-3 as a Basic continuous Rating [BR] .
Generator ratings are covered by various national and
international standards. The most commonly used
reference documents for identification of continuous and
short-term overload conditions are:
IEC 34 -1. ISO 8528-3, BS 5000 pt 3
A “basic continuous rating” (BR) is nominated for these
duties, with the actual operating temperature identified by
a thermal classification, with the highest continuous rating
(BR) being offered under the class ’H’ thermal
classification.
BS 5000 pt 3 stipulated conditions allow a 10% overload
condition for ‘One hour in 12’, accepting that:-
The ambient temperature must not exceed 27°C.\"
