    Russian 100mm Flachette Round

    I found this poster for sale on ebay, and I thought the information would be useful to some of you. It is for the D-10 tank cannon on the T-55 tank. It's name is "USCH1".

    Thanks, Steve. Looks like they use the old Shrapnel approach to theirs instead of our split the casing THEN shotgun it from the base. I wonder how they solve the stacking problem. Thanks, again, Bruce.

    We've done a couple of threads on this several years ago, it appears that from several of the recovered rounds the Soviets took a different approach, keeping things simple. 152mm, 130mm, 122mm have all been found that were simply dump-filled with flechettes, then flooded with hot wax to make a somewhat more stable cargo. When you open the round you could slide the entire mass out. I still have some flechettes with tiny chunks of wax attached.

    In the display pieces they are shown very differently however, I photographed a number of items in the storage area of the Artillery Museum at St. Petersburg. They are all very nice and neat with dividers, etc. I suspect that the practical item went to the field, the pretty items went to the museum.

    A little bit of searching should pull up the pictures from each.

    hello
    i don't understand russian ,but this 100mm is not for the D10 tank cannon because the case represented is semi rimmed
    normally an experimental 100mm gun for aircraft (don't remember the model)

    I do understand some Russian, and it is in plain text "D-10" and "100 Tank". It also says the round is for the BS-3 cannon which is the 100mm 1944 towed antitank gun that uses the same round as the D-10. I cannot speak to the artist's ability when it came to drawing the base of the round.
