About tank guns and amunition, hope it will be interesting topic :-) In penetration data I will base on russian sources -they are ussaly most credible (the best). I will ussaly give value for monolith steel plate slopped on 60@ - it's the best scenario for APFSDS penetrator. In sucht scenario (slopped on 60@ plate) penetration value can be bigger at even 17-20% then on 0.degree plate - this is caused by "asymmetry loads back surface" of the plate): First: M829 M829A1 M829A2 M829A3 M829A4 M829: DOI: 1985 penetration at 2km, on plate slopped by 60@: 540-560mm RHA:
Hello, I was wondering what were the Rh-105 penetration capabilities with 60s and 70s ammo? This is the only information i found thus far: Thank you sovngard! 130mm @ 60° @ 2000m 150mm @ 60° @ 800m What about 100m and 1000m? What about 0°?
M1 CATTB pic from TankNet. I feel uncertain whether its cannon's caliber was 140mm or not, I found a figure at the document AD-A228 389 showed behind, which label the gun as LW 120.But in many ways I've found its data in websites all considered to be 140mm. AFAIK,the first xm291(140)demonstrator was based on xm1 tank, and the successor was the''Thumper'' which was fitted with a new turret look like the CATTB but still m1a1 hull(Maybe it was CATTB's predecessor? ) I will really appreciate if anyone have valuable information to share
http://www.popsci.com/china-builds-worlds-fastest-tank-gun-then-tries-hide-it New high velocity 125mm tank gun reportedly starting testing for the Chinese military. Not surprised that the data disappeared off the university website at all. Edit: 125mm/60? oO
