30x250mm Caseless For Recoilless Autocannon Mauser / Rheinmetall RMK-30

The RMK-30 autocannon employed a front loading revolving chamber to shorten the gun and used caseless 30mm ammunition; developed in the 1990’s. Apparently the high cost of manufacturing ammunition among other things resulted in the cancelation of the RMK-30 around 2010

Here are a couple of links pertaining to the RMK-30

Here is a BOCN thread showing a factory mockup of a RMK 30 cartridge http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/threads/65987-RMK-30-Rheinmetall-Mauser

Can anyone provide a photo of an actual RMK-30 30x250mm caseless cartridge?

Thanks,

Brian

And then there is this sheet from Mauser I think.
As we see there was also a 35mm version and also different case lengths.
