25mm Frangible APDS-T cartridge

The Frangible APDS-T cartridge provides enhanced lethality and increased survivability for infantry fighting vehicles in air defense. Featuring improved on-target performance and low time of flight, the cartridge provides greater kill capability against maneuvering, multilayered targets such as fighter aircraft and helicopters. This round has a well-proven design and verified production processes (same as M791 APDS-T). Its low time of flight gives it a higher POH/POK than MP, SAPHEI, or HE rounds versus selected targets.
