The M829A3 APFSDS-T, an armor-piercing, fin-stabilized discarding sabot with
tracer, is one of eight rounds in our line of 120mm conventional tank
ammunition, which is the most advanced such ammunition in the world. All rounds
are fully compatible with 120mm smoothbore weapons on M1A1 and M1A2 Abrams main
battle tanks and the Leopard 2 main battle tanks with L44 and L55 smoothbore
cannons. The 120mm training ammunition designs provide low-cost, live-fire
training to the tank crew.
The M829A3 round defeats advanced armor at extended ranges. It is the newest
design of the U.S. Army's kinetic-energy tank cartridge. With an extended range
and improved accuracy, this is the most lethal tank round in the world. The
M829A3 utilizes state-of-the-art composite sabot, propellant and penetrator
technologies to ensure that U.S. armored forces will maintain battlefield
supremacy well into the future.
