I was lucky to have just added this beautiful, inert, 76mm APFSDS projectile to my collection with the help of an IAA Member. I am pretty certain that this projectile was manufactured by Israel for South Africa for one of their light weight AFV’s? I am not sure what the gold anodized color is supposed to signify. I do not think this example was for tactical use as I have seen other IMI manufactured 76’s made for South Africa that were painted and stenciled in typical colors and markings. Now I just need to find the correct band for it.
PS: Great job on he new forum, Aaron! Thank you for all of your hard work, it looks great!
