Recently I added this unknown, guessing 105MM or 120MM TPDS Sub-Projectile assembly to my collection. If anyone has information on it, I would be grateful. It has an unusual tracer cup so I am thinking this may be an early design? There is evidence of blue paint which in addition to the fact the forward portion appears to be aluminum makes me think it is target practice.
It has a very shallow tracer cavity. Most modern TPDS and APDS in 105 and 120MM to my knowledge use a deeper and external tracer cup.
Complete assembly sitting on a Russian T72 Tank piston :-)
