    Interesting. One more type, beside already known: 125 mm Mk 1/AMK-340, Mk 2, so called hybrid type (unidentified Russian penetrator, Indian propellant case), AMK-338 (unidentified Russian type), AMK-339 (3BM42) and AMK-340A (CL 3254M/M711).

    and what does "soft core" means, all We-Ni-Fe alloys are "soft" IIRC

    My guess it is that to express a difference between hard, nondeforming core materials like tungsten carbide and softer, eroding heavy tungsten alloys. Oh, and I guess (again) that first generation of Indian FSAPDS, namely 120 mm Mk 1 for Arjun, used W-Ni-Cu, like 105 mm L64 on which, I guess (yep, for the last time), that projectiles was based on.

    One more on Indian 125 mm rounds - new TPFSDS, described in DRDO newsletter, Feb 2020. Low ricochet range and low EFC mentioned, nothing on "battle" range limiting. In this times fin stablization is not very common in TP ammunition.
