    French AMX 13 Tank 75mm Drill Rounds - Israeli Service

    The only info I have on these is the photos. I have no dimensions or other photos. These have what appear to me to be obvious French and Israeli ink stamps. Are these for the AMX 13 tank with the 75mm cannon? Thank you for your help.

    Yes, and they were also mounted on M4 Shermans. The Hebrew says, "MUZZLE VELOCITY: 750 METERS/SECOND".

    They have been positively identified as French made CN75-M50 training rounds. I have attached photos of the projectiles and case head stamps. I will be getting one for myself and a spare just in case anyone is interested.
