The Sabot is a non-explosive tank round that consists of a narrow metal rod made of depleted uranium that penetrates armor then explodes into a spray of metal fragments.
“It liquefies everything inside,” said the soldier in the video below. “You can technically come in with a hose and hose out the enemy tank crew. It just annihilates human matter.”
Firing the Sabot round:
The Sabot round is outfitted with a shell to stabilize the rod inside the barrel. Once it’s fired, the shell breaks away as the round zooms to its target at 3,500 mph.
Enemies have no chance of survival; the Sabot round turns them into a fine mist.
Here’s how the U.S. military used the Sabot round against suicide bombers in Baghdad to great effect.
