105-mm Tank Ammunition

The Army uses alloyed depleted Uranium [DU] in the 105 millimeter (mm) kinetic energy cartridges. The M1 and M60 series tanks use the 105 mm cartridge; the Army also planned to use the 105 mm in the main gun of the XM8 Armored Gun System. Currently, there is no 105mm tank ammunition production.
