Tungsten armor-piercing discarding sabot (APDS) was initially the main design of the kinetic energy (KE) penetrator. The logical progression was to make the shot longer and thinner to concentrate the kinetic energy in a smaller area.To maximize the amount of kinetic energy released on the target, the penetrator must be made of a dense material, such as tungsten alloy . The hardness of the penetrator is of less importance, but is still a factor as abrasion is a major component of the penetrator defeat mechanism.
Tungsten armor piercing fin stabilized discarding sabot is significant standoff armor defeat capability, high reliability and high first round hit probability.
Significantly improved range and penetration over existing conventional APDS ammunition Features:
Higher muzzle velocity
Significant increase in armor penetration
Improved standoff range
Barrel wear equivalent to other fielded U.S. Army 25mm ammunition
Increased gun system life and reduced replacement costs
Improved accuracy and lethality at long range
These features greatly enhance light armored vehicles and armored fighting vehicles utilizing 25mm x 137 gun systems.
