25mm M790's family of ammunition

This round is fired from the Bradley Fighting Vehicle (BFV) and the Marine Lightly Armoured Vehicle (LAV). The M791 APDS-T is used for armour penetration and the M792 HEI-T is used for anti-personnel and soft target defeat. These combat rounds received excellent feedback during Operation Desert Storm. All rounds are interchangeable with the M242 Bushmaster gun, the KBA B02B automatic cannon, the GE525 (GAU-12/U) Gatling gun, and other NATO-qualified systems.
