Wazza MPAT?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Curiousity got the better of me, so i went a'lookin.

Is the HEAT-MP-T (M830A1) the same thing as the MPAT?

Here is some info on two other rounds for the Abrams 120mm main gun, the M908 120mm Obstacle Defeating round, and the XM1028 120mm Canister Tank Cartridge:

A shot of the M1028 being fired at a 50 M target array of cinderblock walls, wooden walls, & personnel targer forms. Taken about a 15 months ago. Awesome round!! A pity it wasn't available sooner.

Am I crazy, or is the M830A1 fused HE round NOT fin-stabilized? Take a close look at the cut-away round in the link above. If no fins (and there could be unseen spring-loaded fins there for all I know) how is the round stabilized?
