A Question for Shimon . . .
I was reading just recently about the Israeli-developed APAM tank round, Shimon. As I understand it, this is intended as a multipurpose round that may be used against just about anything from anti-personnel, to breaching concrete walls, to cutting through tank armor by varying the type of warhead load and the fuse timing. Have you seen this round in action, and if so, is it really as effective as it appears to be? Also, I noticed that the article described the round as a 105mm, but as I understand it, the new Merkava IV carries a 120mm gun. The APAM doesn't appear to be a sabot round, so are the Israelis developing a 120mm version for use with the Merkava IV?
