    Tank firing in slow motion

    Side view of a 125mm projectile and muzzle blast leaving a Russian T-90 tank shot at 18,000 frames/second.


    This Tank Shooting In Super-Slow Motion Is Absolutely Insane

    We all know muzzle flash is primarily unburned thus wasted powder. I'd think they could reduce the charge and get the same effect/results?? but never having fired a tank size weapon I'll reserve judgement. EXCITING FILM THO if the projectile misses it surly will burn the BG to the ground.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I got to fire the main gun of the M1 Abrams when we were doing some training at Ft Knox. That was a hoot!

    In order to get the projectile to accelerate within a reasonable barrel length, there's going to be some pretty awesome flash and noise. These guns are typically being fired at either targets that are out of sight, or at enemies who are in sight but one or both of you are on the move. The presence or absence of muzzle flash is of little concern to those sending the mail, or those receiving it. Same for heavy artillery or naval guns. Economy of powder charge is not a concern in warfare!

    BTW, having spent close to month of my life at Aberdeen Proving Ground doing vibration surveys on the AGT1500 engine in the Abrams, I got pretty familiar with the 120 mm gun. It's a smoothbore (replacing the original 105 rifled gun) because rifling would slow the projectile down! At the time (c. 1990) there were 3 or 4 different rounds available, the most devastating being the "HEAT" round - high energy anti-tank. This is the one with the depleted uranium penetrator which has a muzzle velocity around 7000 ft/sec and could penetrate even the Soviet's reactive armor. Friction on the penetrator as it drove through heavy armor resulted in a spray of molten metal reaching the other side - completely unsurvivable in an armored vehicle's turret or hull.

    Actually, you are describing the APFSDS round - Armor piercing, fin stabilized, discarding sabot.

    The HEAT round is High Explosive Anti tank. It uses an explosive charge to drive a metal liner through armor.

    10thmtn is correct about the sabot round. Gasmitty I think you're describing artillery. Indirect fire. Tanks use direct fire (you shoot at targets you can see, and who can see you.

    10thmtn I was in 1/12 at Ft Knox which provided the tanks for the armored officer basic course.

    Now let's see some slo-mo of a T-90 on the receiving end!

    Yeah I could probably dodge that projectile but that fireball would probably flash fry me if I were too close.

    But how do we conceal one of those bad boys.

    Excuse me sir, but you seem to have something sticking out from under your shirt.

    Great video, thanks for posting.
