    Tanksoldier: Do they still use the 120mm HEP and Flechette rds as part of the basic combat load? The original M1's I trained on had selector switches for the computer to calibrate for these loads. 'Course that was the older 105mm smoothbore. Lessee if I remember the terminology: Armor Piercing, Fin Stabilized, Discarding Sabot is the main gun tank round, correct? APFSDS right?

    The old 105mm main gun had the HEP and Beehive rounds, also WP.

    For a long time the only war rounds for the 120mm were APFSDSDU (Depleted Uranium) and HEAT... of course there are various training versions of those.

    Today they are starting to field a canister round, and a "self-forging penetrator" round... long explanation on that one, but essentially it's an explosive round that forms a molten penetrator at an angle to the flight axis of the round, exploding before it hits the target... so you can shoot "over" a tank in a turret-down hide position and the round will go over it and explode down into the top armor. Also good as a proximity round vs helicopters.

    Many Iraqis had no clue. Guys would jump out in the middle of the street and spray an M1 from the hip with an AK at 50 yards.

    Absolutely clueless... like that guy.

    You probably guessed it! I got started on the internet doing research on the Rapture and related topics. I made the name up because my name is Joe and I've always like those Snoopy cartoons (Joe Cool, Joe Preppy, etc.).

    The handle kinda annoys some folks that are a bit legalistic in their religion.
