120MM Mid-Air Blast Tank Shell - winner of Defense Prize


#1

Some amazing in flight projectile film footage of a really high tech 120MM tank round made by IMI. I am not sure if the US MPAT (Multi Purpose Anti Tank Round) has the same capabilities or not? It can detonate directly over the heads of enemy troops.

The Swedes did that with their 57mm L/70 already. So no new technology here.

I saw the Swedish ammo that did that on the Future Weapons TV show. Pretty awesome. Just have not scene in flight footage of a 120MM Tank projectile doing this. Some really impressive high speed camera work. Years ago I saw similar footage of the US 120MM canister round projectile dispersing its 10,000 (?) sub-projectiles that was also totally awesome.
