Fede, thanks a lot!
Before that other thread emerged I was not aware Argentina was using this caliber (and the MG151).

Did the Argentine navy not have a colored band or similar to ID a tracer round?

They used the same code as the army and airforce, where the tracer is only identified by the presence of a “T” (Trazante) after “EJ” (Ejercicio).

Thanks!
Is this the current marking practice too?

I share this Armor Piercing - Tracer (PT) variant.


Fede:
Is it also a contract for us?

Martin, thanks a lot! It gets better and better!
What will be next, a dummy?

Hola Martín,

Yes, it is also a contract for Argentina. Nice find!

@EOD Alex, I haven’t seen any functional dummies, but the navy made some inert TP-T cartridges for display along the Alouette.
