As mentioned by the company, this discharge sabot round is identical in appearance and is ballistically identical to the APDS-T cartridge M392A2 up to 2000 m. It is used as a training surrogate for all 10mmmmmm kinetic energy cartridges, including the M735, M774, M833 and M900.
There is a tracer located at the base of the projectile. A plastic band surrounds the sabot on the front side. A fiber winding band and a rubber obscuring band were mounted on the base of the sabot. The electric primer’s igniter tube extends the length of the lightly packed propellant into a cartridge case.
Workplaces and funds, which are expected to be completed in May 202, will be determined with each order.
