fulminante


Explanation:
No entiendo mucho de armas, pero por lo visto un "cap firing tank" es un tanque de juguete que dispara "caps" (fulminantes) -ver referencias web. De otro lado, el RAE considera que un fulminante es una materia capaz de hacer estallar cargas explosivas. En tu contexto no sé si el "cap" será inofensivo o no, pero yo pondría algo como "fulminante de disparo/para disparar" o "disparo de fulminantes". En cualquier caso, echa un vistazo a la página http://cipres.cec.uchile.cl/~ctrujill/. Espero que te sirva de ayuda!!
