Looks to me that “feathered” is the “artificial intelligence” translation of fin stabilized.

Yes, Google Translate comes up with unusual terminology on a regular basis.

Interesting replica, there was some similar Chinese made 30x165mm APFSDS replicas around a year or two ago.

I would love to find the proper UBR11 APFSDS cartridge for my collection someday. Already have the 3UBR8 APDS :grin:
