    Thanks again.
    What is the purpose of the additional central ring to the sabot? I've never seen that before.
    Dave.

    i don't know how it's in english, but i think it's some kind of obturator ring, google translate for polish "pierscien uszczelniajacy" = "Sealing ring"

    sorry for my bad english.

    Thanks again, what is the idea of two different penetrators one behind the other.
    I've seen this is russian 76mm arrowhead rounds where there is a forward core with a heavy metal plug behind it. Never seen it in a dart.
    Your English is very good!
    Thanks.
    Dave.

    easier to make two short than a long one, probably so, and did.

    it would be interesting to see cutaways of other 125mm APDSFS, but i seen only for 3BM15 and 3BM42.

    You are right, I confused it with the BM-32 (3VBM-13).
