Very nice Bob thanks for showing them.
Whats the APDS one for? I assume its not for the GAU 8 - may be wrong here but wouldn't the plastic sabot parts get sucked into the engines on the aircraft and mess it up?
Hi Dave ,

You'd be right about the sabot and aircraft,the only airborne use would be from gunships and helicopters,in non-forward firing positions.

I think this one is for a CIWS/Naval anti-missile type mounting.

cheers Bob.
