M-388 APFSDS-T

Israel Military Industries (IMI)

IMI introduced a third generation of its Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabbot (APFSDS) round designated M-338. The new round improves the Kinetic energy (KE) penetrator's  performance of primary 120mm anti-tank rounds, and is suitable for all types of guns (including L44). M-338 uses a tungsten core designed for improved penetration and performance. Using new Low Vulnerability (LOVA) propellant enabled IMI to increase the M-338's muzzle velocity with large safety margin while maintaining precision and operability over the entire temperature range defined by STANAG criteria. IMI used a uniquely designed tungsten alloy core, with unique mechanical properties and sabot design to improve accuracy at all combat ranges.
