GIAT, France.
Definitely. And I agree that it is inconsistent with the shown attack trajectory. Possible explanation is that there exists or used to exist a forward-firing warhead variant.

There will be 2 mode of flight for top attack, , one parallel to the ground, and another is plunging.

Vas ist? looks interesting, but data in addition to pictures would be good.

Looks like rocket boosted HE, and a Cannister sort of like Ahead, some others.

Then there are also two concave surfaces? Because the side-shooting one can hardly be used in diving attack profile...

Ummmm.... big bullets.... B)

I don't see any segmentation to the sabot petals. How are they supposed to discard from the penetrator? Machined fine enough that you can't see the seam?

It doesn't look like DM33 to me... IIRC DM33 has no extension in front of the sabot, and its frontal cap is not flush with the penetrator body.

thats not a t-80U, thats a t-72 or t-90.
you can see part of the stub case ejection port on the rear of the image (green)
which is not present on any t-80, where the stubs are placed back into the carousel after firing.

Interesting...I'll stick to my guns that it's a T-80U...tho' I see your point. It also looks like that blue cable would prevent the ejection of any "stubs" as well.

The crew space seems be adequate, if they can load the carousel or turning around. But T-55 turret with two men on one side in an equal large turret is hard to imagine. Did they chaged tankers height restrictions after the introduction of 3-men crews?

BTW Couldn't the "stub ejector" be the frontal part of the half-raised (for reloading) round cell of a T-64/80 style autoloader.

Only the drivers restrictions.
