AbstractAn armor piercing projectile having a carrier body and a rod-type high density penetrator core. The leading edge portion of the carrier body is beveled and extends beyond the nose of the penetrator core. Encompassing the carrier body is a nose shape to provide relatively low aerodynamic drag during flight. The carrier body is designed to allow the projectile to be spin stabilized when fired from a suitable weapon.
