    The first is for an insert barrel for the 100mm tank guns vz.53 (T-55) and D10-T6 (D10-T25).
    The designation is 20-PSv-38

    20-PSv-38 is the older variant designation. This round is designated 20-JPNhSv-38.
    The original subcaliber ammunition was manufactured from German projectiles and cases and some czech made cases were manufactured too.
    Joes round is new manufacture batch from the 70's.
    It was used in the tank guns and self propelled gun vz.44. The gun vz.53 is a towed gun which did not use the subcaliber 20mm barrel.

    The other items were not regular army issue.

    @Nabob

    Thanks for the correction. Unfortunately, I have very little information on Czech ammunition.
    Is this a 20-PSv-38?
