Surrogate Projectile: 30mm x 165mm AP-T

This test item is an accurate copy of the penetrating core from the Soviet 30mm x 165mm AP-T projectile (as per STANAG 4569 / AEP-55 Vol 1 ed2 level 6a).

The surrogate has been reverse engineered from actual projectiles and is correct in mass, dimensions and metallurgy. The pressed steel windshield is omitted as the aerodynamic function it performs is not required for armour T&E purposes (this also greatly improves projectile flight).

The copper driving band of the original projectile is also omitted and its location simplified to prevent use in an actual weapon. The tracer cavity of the original design is retained and supplied empty, and can also be filled with an inert material if required.
