    20mm Hispano?

    A couple of 20mm rounds. I know the black one on the right is an Hispano Cannon Ball, but any ideas on the grey looking one with the removable tip?

    I have only seen the SAPI rounds with white tip and red projectile.
    The nose plug is solid and body filled with incendiary compound that you have to remove.
    Does an SAP round exist and what is the projectile colour?
