Description

INERT Unfired British 20pr APDS/T Round Sn O 910

This is a scarce round for the British 20pr tank gun as fitted to the British Centurion tank. The 20pr round replaced the 17pr tank gun originally fitted to the tank and the bore of the gun went from 3 inches to 84mm. The projectile is a 20pr Mk3/1 APDS/T (Armour Piercing Discarding Sabot fitted with trace) and consists of a tungsten core sheathed in steel, fitted inside a light alloy sabot or sheath. Upon firing, the sabot is discarded and the reduced calibre projectile with trace carries on to the target. This projectile was made in the Royal Laboratories in April 1955 and carries most of the original paint. The cartridge case, a 20pdr mark l was made by RLB (Royal Laboratories) in 1955 and has the correct roll neck crimp for this projectile. Price includes UK delivery. Sn O931
