    Contemporary Western Tank Rumble!

    No idea, most of them are taken from Bauman book (2006 Moscow) and they are put ther based on "unkown" criteria. Thats the problem whit, in theory realible sources. Whit polish WITU is the same - sometimes they put something shamefully mistaken but generally it's good source.

    Ok, so I should correct this tabel in case M833, Mathos proofs convinced me. How about DM13 and DM23? @Methos?

    BTW - Im not sure DM-13. In green book (Bauman 2006 Moscow) is 220mm/60@ but IMHO it could be overestimated. From the other side - some other polish Autors found in british archves that "unkown" german 120mm KE was able to penetrate 450mm steel from 1km in late 70's... so maybe..

    Ok, it's not my problem to be honest. As I know finish MoD want's to not public armor photos before whole delivery will be ended but somebody on finish exibition day just make photos ant put it in to net. And now is hot phone between factory and MoD who put this in public. Even funny, but for example in Poland posting this photos can be very problemfull, despite fact that they are "somwehere" on the net.

    I can explain a lot here ;-) 3BM31 and 3BK31M was attempd to incarase penetration in HEAT round without changing working method of cumulative warhed. Now in west we have SC whit 10-12 and even mor CD penetration. In the end of the 80's it was impossible so choosen operation method was diffrend. Precursor in BK31M is just normal precursor - nothing to do here exept that in some sources this precursor have abilitiest to work like in HOT3/PARS so beeing lunched in to target before main round part had optimum stand-off distance. In other - just slinding to have bigger distance. Main charge - here is funny - axuilary cone (second charge) was to just incarase armour penetration. This SC was ignit first and milisecond after ignit was first (main) SC - two jets where joined together and become one long "super jet". Wery sophisticated idea but dead end. Just googled pdf: 23 RD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON BALLISTICS TARRAGONA, SPAIN 16-20 APRIL 2007 STUDY ON TANDEM SHAPED CHARGES TECHNIQUE Huang zhengxiang 1 , Zhang xianfeng

    Tanks guns and ammunition.

    Polish Pz.511 HE 120mm is orginally polish ammo - developed since 2002. Basicly it's...recalibrated 125mm OF-19 new unitary catrige. Indeed polish industru is looking for programable upgreade of the Pz.511. The problem is that all best solutions are secure by patents. BTW: Polish :Leopard 2PL will have german programable munition standard - the same as for DM-11.
