Interesting 76MM GUIDED Navy HEFSDS Projectile


#1

I came across this interesting article showing a GUIDED 76MM Navy HEFSDS round and thought I’d post it. It looks like a normal APFSDS sub-projectile fitted with canards. Pretty wild design.

Actually, that should be HEFSDS ;-)

Fantastic links to some amazing photos, Alex! I just copied all the images for my reference photo collection. Some of those 127MM projectiles are so unique and highly engineered they blow me away. :-)

Tony, thanks for correcting my mistake. I’m off to change the thread title.
