    105x617 DM53 APFSDS-T?

    Received a reply from the Wehr Technische Dienstelle 91, were they test ammunition for the Bundeswher, that this projectile is unknown to them. The search continues.

    I received a reply from the Gentleman working at the KCWM. The type is not known to them, so not tested in The Netherlands. The search continues.

    105x617 DM53 APFSDS-T?

    Thank you SH_MM, for the additional information. The projectile I have, has a completely different shape than the one pictured. The front part is slightly wider than the rest of the penetrator, similar to the looks of the 120mm DM33. I contacted their general @mindef email address. No reply yet. I did manage to get a direct email address from someone who works there, if I don't get a reply shortly, I'll contact that person directly. I also contacted the Munitie Technologisch Museum in Landhorst. They did not have any information on this type and thought it might be an experimental type.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have contacted them.
  8. Hello all, I apologize for the fact that my first post is a question. I am a Dutch collector of medium and large calibre AP ammunition and I recently bought an 105mm APFSDS-T projectile, that is marked with the designation DM53. The 120mm DM53 is well known, but I cannot find any information on the 105mm DM53. I do know the IMI M426/DM63 round exists, for I have seen pictures of that, which would indicate that a DM53 would exist as well, in accordance with the way German ammo designations go. Questions to Rheinmetall, the Bundeswehr and various collector groups have remained unanswered. Among the experts here, is there anyone who has information on this type of APFSDS-T Round? Thank you in advance, Domichan
